Should you have booked a course of General German or Individual Tuition we will also send you a placement test that should be taken within two weeks.
Students of General German Courses or Individual Tuition will be asked to take our placement test. This test will help us to find the right course for group tuition students and the best teacher for students who booked individual tuition. It is a written test, that checks on your grammar and vocabulary knowledge, reading comprehension and capability of written expression. Additionally we might have a short interview with you on your first day at school which corresponds to an “oral test” before definitely assigning you to a course checking on your oral expression and listening comprehension. Please take the placement test within two weeks.
Courses start on Mondays, you will be expected to arrive the Sunday before. It is of utmost importance that you inform us about your arrival time on Sunday. Please do not forget this! Your host family wants to welcome you appropriately, therefor they need to know when your plane lands or train/bus arrives in Vienna. Please also consider that your host family might spend the Sunday outside their home, maybe even outside the city and you certainly do not want to stand before closed doors when you've finally made it to your host family.
First Course Day
Once you've met your host family, they will hand you our welcome letter. It will hold the information when you are expected the next day and how you will find your way to the course room. Also, your host family will introduce their home rules to you and help you out by answering all your questions. On Monday - your first course day - you will attend our introductory class where you will get all the information you need for your course and your stay in Vienna. You will receive your timetable and a lot of information about Vienna.
