The basic programme provides intensive coaching in grammar, sentence structure and vocabulary. Reading and listening comprehension, as well as written exercises, are important components of our courses. We believe it is important to vary teaching methods in our German courses as much as possible. Since every group is different, our teachers take an individual approach to each group and flexibly adapt their teaching methods to students' respective learning needs.
As soon as you have booked your course, you will be able to take the assessment test online and we shall have your online test results ready when you arrive in Vienna!We supplement various course books with authentic teaching materials such as newspaper and magazine articles, audio-visual materials, and activities inside and outside the classroom, and ensure a maximum of spoken communication. You are encouraged to practice your spoken German in real-life situations, with your teacher, and with other participants, in pairs and groups.
Modern Teaching Materials
Apart from authentic teaching materials prepared by our teachers, we use textbooks by the following publishers: Hueber, Verlag fŘr Deutsch and Langenscheidt. Our courses follow accepted curricula, from beginners to advanced. Modern teaching materials and equipment are used. We have cd and video recorders, together with a large collection of cds and video tapes for language teaching purposes, on topics including the arts, Austria, literature and business. Use of the multimedia library is a good way of adding to and reinforcing the skills acquired in class work.
