There are also a few places available for participants who would like to continue training German at a beginners’ level (A1.2, A2.1, A2.2). These places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis, according to placement test results.

Course registration:

Registration week: Monday, October 11 (from 9:00) through Monday, October 18.

This test is obligatory for the Early Bird and Evening classes – unless you are a complete beginner. You can take the test well in advance of our registration week (but don't be tempted to let others help you - to get a place in our courses, your test results should correspond to your actual level). Have the test results ready to include in the application form.

Courses start the following week (as of October 25/26).
