Miscellaneous  

Premium Course - Enjoy additional individual tuition

By booking the Premium course you'll get 2 units of individiual tuition every Friday - one-to-one lessons with only you and your teacher.

Deepen and use the German vocabulary and phrases that you've learned during the week in the Intensive course!

Advantages of mini groups

Our classes do not exceed 5 persons but may very well be even smaller. The fewer students per class the more intense the tuition will become.

  • You will be able to speak a lot more
  • The learning experience is much more intense than in a larger group
  • The fewer students, the more intense the tuition becomes.

Course Units of sole participants

Please consider that we are a very small language school. It can happen, that you are the only person of your language level. As we do not want to cancel courses, we decided to reduce the number of daily units by one.

In fact your course will turn into individual tuition at group rate. Should you be alone, you will receive only 3 units of tuition a day. Please consider, that your individual tuition will be much more intense and we can concentrate more on your needs!

Of course, individual lessons of the Premium course will not be reduced! If you decide for the Premium version, you will definitely have 2 units of individual tuition on Friday!

Contents of course

Group Tuition

From the first day on you will start talking in German actively. At the end of the week you will be able to hold small conversations and present yourself in German.

We will cover various topics to help you build-up vocabulary, explain grammer and do exercises. Teachers will use different methods to exercise and help you use and remember the newly learned words and grammer matters like small role-plays, listening comprehensions, fill-in texts, wrtiting exercises, etc.

Typical topics in Total Beginners Courses are greeting & getting to know each other, presenting yourself, family, hobbies and professions, nationalities, countries, etc.

We do not only teach German but we also want to share as much of our culture with you as possible. Therefor we often work with texts about Austrian and Viennese culture. This way you will get to know more about our traditions and people, our feasts, history and monuments.

Homework

It is up to yourself how intense you want your German learning experience to be!

Our teachers will assign you homework from Monday to Thursday. This will give you the opportunity to practice grammar and new vocabulary all alone at home. It will help you remember the newly learned and give you the opportunity to ask questions the next day in class.

The teacher will then either discuss the homework during class or take it home to correct it there. The more students take part in the homework the better the teacher can see if there are similar mistakes or what aspects should be explained better.

Though we strongly recommend to do your assignments (especially for total beginners it is very important to do exercises regularly to get to used to the German language), homework is always voluntarily!

Just please take into consideration that the discussion of the homework is part of the class, so please remain relaxed so others can discuss their homework.

Subsequent Course

If you are a total beginner of the German language you can also stay longer - after completing our Total Beginners Course you can proceed to one of our courses of General German - either Premium or Standard Course. However, make sure you book both courses at the same time, otherwise you might risk not getting into the subsequent course of General German as it might be fully booked. E.g. If you want to stay for 7 weeks in total and are an absolute beginner, you should book the course for total beginners and at the same time book a course of General German that starts right after the total beginners course ends.
