Course preparation
A thorough preparation of your course will ensure a good training result. Try to answer the following questions and decide then in favour of a school and a course programme.
  • Awareness of your personal aims and objectives: What do you want to learn and at what pace?
  • Personal motivation: How many lessons of German instruction per day make sense? How much time should I reserved to indulge into the German way of life?
  • Type and length of the course: Group courses - do the aims of the course match my objectives? One-to-One tuition - does the programme meet my needs regarding duration of course and lessons per day? Is a combination of group and one-to-one instruction the best for me?
  • Attractive city: What does the city offer, it is big enough to cater for different interests? Is it a safe place at all hours? Can I walk from my accommodation to the school?
