German Intensive Course (DaF) – study preparatory

This course is offered for program students who participate in:

  • the ERASMUS+ program, or
  • other university partnership programs,

and who will spend one or two semesters studying at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
Students from other universities can only be admitted to the course upon request.

The course covers the language level A1–C2 and focuses on the following topics:

  • grammar,
  • conversation,
  • writing,
  • reading and listening comprehension.

Therefore, it does not prepare you for a specific area of study.

Additionally, this course will definitely be presented as an Online-course! Please note, that the registration for this course is still subject to change.
