You can follow various German courses at UvA Talen. For those who already speak German at an upper intermediate level, we offer a Refresher course in German.
For those who still need to learn German at a basic level, we offer a German beginner's course. This course follows an internationally recognized standard: the European Framework of Reference, developed by the Council of Europe. At the end of the course, there is a final test. If you pass this test, you will receive a certificate. You may then also progress to the next level.
In all German courses, you will systematically build your vocabulary and your practical knowledge of German grammar. During the lessons, the teacher will make use of a standard coursebook. However, this by no means implies that all lessons are the same! Role plays, short presentations, and audio and video recordings are just a few examples of the various work forms used. Our teachers are experienced and knowledgeable: they act as your personal coach. Naturally, the success of any course will also depend on your own efforts.
