Which course will prepare me best?
Although all of our German courses guarantee a fast learning
success, your progression mainly depends on learning intensity
and the number of weekly lessons. This is why we would like to
advise you taking at least an Intensive Course if you prepare for
university studies â€“ the best choice, however, would be a Premium
Course. Because the 24 lessons of the Intensive Course will
guarantee a continuous progression of your language proficiency.
The language exercises are more intensive and will give
you more self-confidence using the language in a short time. As
soon as you will have reached the required level of proficiency
you can register for a 4-week TestDaF preparation course in
order to train even more efficiently for the TestDaF exam.
How long does the language preparation take?
It depends on different circumstances how long it takes until
you can start studying in Germany. For instance: If your secondary
school diploma will not be acknowledged as equivalent to
the German High School diploma (Abitur), you have to take a
12 month course at the Studienkolleg preparation school in order
to prepare for the Assessment Test. In case your secondary
school diploma is accepted as an equivalent the whole procedure
will be faster. You only have to prove â€“ by passing either the
DSH or the TestDaF exam â€“ that you have sufficient pre knowledge
of the German language. An absolute beginner without
any pre-knowledge at all, should reckon with approximately 40
weeks of German preparation.
