Each semester the Language Center offers members of the RWTH academic community the opportunity to improve their German language skills in a series of courses aimed at both beginners and advanced students.
These courses are subject to fees. You can find information on the course fees under fees.
We offer three types of courses:
2 hours a week-module:
We offer modules in writing, grammar and conversation on the levels B1, B2 and C1.
The modules, where students can specifically expand chosen skills, take place once a week.
Unlike the other language courses these modules don't lead to an improvement of your language level.
4 hours a week-course:
These courses are 4 hours a week, usually in the form of 2 course hours twice a week.
Courses are offered at different levels.
8 hours a week-course:
These intensive courses are 8 hours per week: 4 course hours twice a week.
They are offered at different levels.
The aim of these intensive courses is to complete a whole language level during one semester.
1 hour a week = 45 minutes.
A placement test is compulsory for students with previous knowledge of German who have not otherwise taken courses with us before. The test will determine your current German level so we can offer you an adequate course. Eben if you have certificates of other language centers you still have to take a placement test with us. Students with no previous knowledge don't need to write a placement test.
