Course Description - Courses on-campus or online

In our communicative intensive German language courses, you quickly and systematically learn sentence structure, syntax, and German vocabulary through conversation, listening exercises, dictation, dialog, grammar and much more. To supplement and apply the knowledge obtained in class, you are encouraged to visit the multimedia workshop one additional hour per day under professional supervision in order to perfect your pronunciation, diction, inflection, grammar and vocabulary. You may also wish to participate in one of our appropriate level conversational classes so that you can obtain some fluency in the application of the language you are learning.


The basic structure of German grammar is systematically introduced into classes that last - depending on the beginning date of the course - 10 to 30 weeks. The curriculum is comprised of grammar, exercises, diction, conversation, reading, and listening comprehension. You may also improve your skills in our multimedia workshop two hours per day. Our courses have five levels of difficulty. Students who attend classes regularly and review what was learned, will be able to express themselves in German during every-day life situations (without having to use a mother tongue or any other foreign language). After attending the first three levels, students have the option of preparing themselves for the "Goethe" Diploma and further courses (level B2 and C1).

Cultural Program

The Swiss cultural environment is large and diversified and language students should benefit from it. Speaking and understanding the German language will bring the country and its' citizen closer to a student. Regional and cultural studies about Switzerland, the Canton, and the city of Zurich will create additional interest and motivation to learn. Our monthly excursions take place on Wednesday or Thursday afternoons.


We are also able to help you find accommodations with selected host families, in guesthouses, homes, hotels, or youth hostels. For further information, please contact our office.
