German Courses at HORIZONTE

We are online!

As of December 1st, classroom tuition is no longer possible due to official regulations implemented by the Bavarian Government. All our classes continue online until further notice.

Office hours are from Monday till Friday, 9am-12pm. We hope to reopen again on Monday January 11th. If you have any questions regarding your course please contact us!

We wish you a Merry Christmas and look forward to welcoming you in a better 2021.
Take care and stay safe!

As soon as classroom tuition will be possible again, the following regulations apply:
It is not the same as before Covid-19, but even under the current situation learning German can be fun! Come and have a look. We look forward to welcoming you (again) to beautiful Regensburg and HORIZONTE German Language School.

To guarantee a safe environment for you and our team (min. distance 1.50m between 2 persons), we have reduced the class size in our German courses dramatically. That means better learning conditions for you with a maximum of 8 participants per group. Courses start now between 8.30 and 9.15. This way we keep social contacts at school to a minimum. You may start any Monday (except beginners).

Learning German in 2020

HORIZONTE has taken serious actions to meet the official regulations of the Bavarian government.  This affects classes and housing as well as our leisure programme. Please follow the instructions of HORIZONTE staff at all times and let us know if you have any questions. With the ever-evolving situation we will continue to amend our rules when necessary.
These are the current “Corona rules” at HORIZONTE.

Please be also aware of current travel restrictions. If your country or region is listed as one of the international risk areas by the Robert Koch Institute, you need to be able to present a negative Corona test result. If you need to take a test at the entry you must quarantine yourself until receiving the results. You can be asked to take a second test after 5-7 days depending on the current regulations of the responsible health department. Please contact us if you have any doubts.

Student voices

“Great school! I had a wonderful teacher and learnt so much in one month. There was a really good balance of grammar and conversation. Horizonte is a very professional and well organised school. There were lots of additional activities in the afternoons and saturdays, to allow us to socialise and practice German. Thanks everybody!”
(Barry Gerard O’Driscoll, Irland)
