4. Prerequisites for the German course, teaching:

4.1. What must I be able to do, in order to be able to participate in a German course at the DeutschAkademie?

If you come from a country where different characters are used for writing, you must be able to read and write our script. Otherwise you must first attend an alphabet course.

4.2. Can I even attend a German course, if I don’t yet speak a word of German?

Certainly you can do that. We have many beginners from all over the world in our German language school.

4.3. What about if I’ve already learned some German?

Then we carry out a placement test, in writing in every case and possibly also an oral test.

4.4. Can pupils under 16 years old also attend the school?

Unfortunately not. Our school specializes in adults, and so only teaches pupils from the age of 16.

4.5. Can I change course level, if I feel over- or under-challenged?

Don’t worry; our placement tests are very accurate. But should you be placed in the wrong level even so, we will find a solution for you.

4.6. Can I still learn something, if I can already speak German very well?

Of course. We have the right German course for every level of knowledge.

4.7. How much German must I know, in order not to have to go into the course for absolute beginners?

There is a test for that too. It is important that you be able to form simple complete sentences in the present tense. Of course this still involves a relatively small vocabulary. But we can only come to a definite decision on that with a test.

4.8. What is the language of instruction?

The language of instruction is always German. This is the only way you can learn the German language quickly.

4.9. Are there teachers who speak my native language?

Teaching is, in principle, always conducted in German. That means that the German teacher will normally not speak in your language, even if he or she can do so. Many of our teachers have also taught in other countries and speak several foreign languages fluently. There are no communication problems.

4.10. How many pupils are there in a group?

The German class size is between 7 and 12 students. This allows our student to learn faster and better than in larger groups.

4.11. What teaching materials are used?

We get our books from Hueber-Verlag and Klett-Verlag, for the basic level „MENSCHEN” and for the intermediate level „SICHER! Deutsch als Fremdsprache” and “ASPEKTE neu”. Furthermore, the “EM-Übungsgrammatik” book from Hueber-Verlag is used in our grammar courses. Our teachers also devise their own German course materials and exercises which are tailor-made for your group. Additionally, they carry out listening exercises from the book and think up games for variety and motivation to give the learning process an interesting and communication-oriented form.

4.12. What sort of training do the DeutschAkademie teachers have?

All our teachers are specialists. Most of them have a degree in teaching German as a foreign language. With us you will find the best teaching conditions: trained, experienced Austrian or German teachers.

4.13. Do I have to buy my own textbooks?

No. You can also buy your books here in our office. They cost € 19-23, but are not included in the price of the German course.
