Daily German lessons in small international groups.
You can start your German language course at Horizonte any Monday (except total beginners).
Our Standard Course consists of 20 lessons (45 minutes each) of General German per week.
Course schedule: Monday – Friday, 9:00-12:30 (break 10:30-11:00)
Group size: 5 – 12 students*
*In case of less than 5 students of the same level the number of lessons per week will be reduced to 15 lessons per week if there are 3 or 4 students, 10 lesssons for 2 students and 5 private lessons if a student doesn’t fit into any existing group.
Our experienced and committed teachers are highly qualified to teach German properly, by creating a friendly and personal environment, which best characterises us as an extraordinary German language school. You will receive personalised attention and be encouraged to proactively participate and speak in class.
Our afternoon activities complement the courses perfectly and are the ideal opportunity to practise your German.
The main goal of our Standard German language course is to train your communication skills in German. We will give you a lot of opportunities to speak in class. There will be exercises to improve your listening comprehension skills and you will get a sound knowledge of the German grammar.
The reading of longer texts and text production are generally assigned as homework.
In addition to the course books (mostly used in lower levels), other course material such as recent newspaper articles, internally generated exercises and more is included in the lessons.
Enrolment & Placement
We offer our Standard German course throughout the year at all levels. If you already have some knowledge of German, you can join an existing class any Monday (subject to availability). Please state your estimated level of German in the enrolment form. After having submitted the enrolment we kindly ask you to complete our placement test in order for us to determine your level and find the right class for you.
Please note that German Courses for absolute beginners start on specific dates once a month.
You may book the Standard Course for one week only, but we recommend a minimum duration of at least 2 weeks.
Our experience shows that a minimum of 10 – 12 weeks are necessary to complete one level (levels according to the Common European Framework).
*We always try to stick to this maximum in our Standard German Language Course. We succeed in doing so almost always, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee this limit.
