Learning Objective:

The objective of our intensive language courses is to enable the students to express themselves appropriately in the foreign language; this entails grammatical correctness as well as cultural sensitivity.

Teaching is in small groups ranging from 8 to 16 students.


If the minimum number of course attendees is not fulfilled, the teaching will be more intensive and the course period shortened accordingly.
