German language courses at HORIZONTE Regensburg
If you want or have to learn German, the best way to do it is always to book a German language course in Germany. Only when you are here, you can reach a worthwhile level of immersion in the German culture and language. Even if you have little time: only some weeks of a German language course in Germany will enable you to make much more progress in German than a much longer course in a non German-speaking environment. The people, the day-to-day life and of course the school will have a greater impact on your experience than you may expect.
If you still need to be convinced that this is an investment worth making, read this.
You can opt between different types of courses: Standard Course, Intensive Course, Intensive Course Plus, Refresher Courses for teachers of German, medical German, German for any professional purpose, One-to-one lessons, exam preparation courses.
We also offer Online Courses in case you are not able to come to Germany (at the moment). You can either join an existing class for an Online Standard Course or book Online Individual lessons with one of our qualified teachers.
The average age in our German courses is between 25 and 30. The minimum age is 17.
About 10% of our students are people beyond 50. We asked them if we should offer special 50+ courses for them, but they prefer to be in the „normal“ groups of learners.
