Students in the Preparatory Program attend a German intensive course with other participants from all over the world. Our competent language trainers give regular feedback on individual progress. In addition to group language training, the “Lernstudio” is a key component of the course. Here, students apply and deepen their language skills twice a week, where tutors and teachers are on hand to assist and give advice. Students who wish to enroll in the German Abitur program must have attained German skills at level B2 (CEFR) when starting school.
Natural sciences in particular require a specialized vocabulary. In small groups, the students learn the mathematic and scientific terminology and technical language structures starting at Level B1. Since English is mandatory in German schools, English training provides the participants with the necessary level of language proficiency for their grade level.
We offer an activity program each week in which students can practice everyday conversation in a relaxed atmosphere with young people from all over the world. Students get to know their surroundings and settle in before the school year starts.
During the preparatory program, students stay with carefully selected homestay families in Radolfzell. This type of total immersion allows students to experience everyday German family life. The Carl Duisberg Training Center team is also available for any and all questions during the entire stay.
