As an international school, the study of language is very important to us! Our German as a Second Language (DaZ) courses run throughout the school year. Students learning German as a foreign or second language are grouped according to their skill levels, aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) at levels A1, A2, B1, B2, and C1.
Our courses are structured in a systematic approach preparing students for the school exit exam (“Reifeprüfung”, usually taken at age 18), from the very first German word at A1 level to an average B2/C1 level at graduation.
Our goal is for students to join their native speaking peers in German class and participate in general German lessons as soon as possible (B1 level onwards).
