Our classes are taught by qualified instructors who either have a university degree in German as a modern language, German studies, or a teaching degree. Our instructors also have qualifications in methodology, and are experienced in teaching German. Our instructors will keep you informed of your learning achievements on a regular basis, and can advise you as to how you should approach your continued learning most effectively.
Learning is an individual process. How much time you need to attain a certain level depends on various and individual factors: your commitment, your time input, and your taking advantage of additional practice resources. Should you already have studied one or more languages, you may learn German faster. It makes a big difference if you participate in a language course in your home country or in Germany, where you will be exposed to the German language outside the classroom. – Goethe Institut
