German Courses - German Intensive Course

Short- and Long-term Courses

The Intensive Course provides you with the German language skills required for further education, to achieve your career goals and broaden your horizons. In our short-term courses, starting at a duration of one week, you acquire basic knowledge of German or develop your existing language skills in a targeted manner. Prospective university students or those preparing for a professional qualification in Germany can systematically build up the necessary German language skills to meet specific needs in our long-term courses and reach the required language level in best time.


In addition to group language training, the Lernstudio is a key component of the Intensive Course. Carl Duisberg Centren provides you with the support to achieve your specific goals. You may study independently or with instruction and seek out help with your homework.
A variety of language learning materials are available at the Carl Duisberg Lernstudio and online. Our experienced teachers conduct workshops and help you make the most of your time.

Afternoon Program

In addition to group courses and the "Lernstudio", we organize a new activity program every week for participants at all locations. Participants are given the opportunity to get to know Germany and make new friends.
