*German courses in online format*

The course format of the German courses for the Intensive German language course in September 2021, the Intensive German language course in October 2021 and *new* the in-sessional semester courses in the winter semester 2021/2022 is the online format. Participants should accordingly ensure that they have technical equipment suitable for online modules (PC, laptop, tablet) and functioning internet access. Unfortunately, the ISZ Saar cannot provide such equipment!

Our German language courses

German language courses that run during the semester

The semester courses are the ideal format for international students, visiting international scholars, researchers, academics and members of their families. The courses offered cover all language proficiency levels and run for the entire duration of the semester. Depending on the course selected, participants can improve their general language skills or acquire and develop their proficiency in specific areas. Our special beginners' courses are aimed at participants with no knowledge of German.

Short Intensive courses

To help make their study abroad semester a success, students in the Erasmus+ and other exchange programmes can take part in the intensive language training courses that run in March, October and September of each year and whose content and curriculum have been designed to meet the specific needs of exchange students.

Language courses for doctoral researchers / PhD students

These courses meet the needs of doctoral researchers who wish to improve their German language proficiency. In addition to improving general language competence, the focus is on the day-to-day skills required in a German academic environment – phone calls with German colleagues, writing and replying to e-mails, etc.

Tandem language exchange programme

The tandem programme pairs up people with different native languages who are interested in learning the language of their tandem partner. The programme is open to students, university employees and, if enough places are available, to members of the public.
