Welcome to Zentrum für deutsche Sprache und Kultur! At our language school, you can learn German alongside other students from all around the globe - one of the most difficult, but also most rewarding languages in the world. Whether you need it for your studies, your job or simply to get by in everyday life, we can help. With our courses you can learn and improve your reading, listening, speaking, writing and grammar skills in a lively and communicative environment and learning is particularly effective with small groups of 5 – 9 participants.
