Our German Courses

TANDEM Köln offers German Standard and Intensive Courses for all levels throughout the year. Classes take place in the morning or afternoon. Participants* with previous knowledge of German can join ongoing courses at any time after consulting the office (placement test is done online or by phone in advance). Further information on the intensive courses can be found here, on the standard courses here.

For those who have to work during the day, our German evening courses take place twice a week. Depending on the level these take place on Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday from 18:30 - 21:00. A course runs for 12 weeks, but it is also possible to attend a course for 4 weeks.

Our German courses are suitable as preparation for the telc German exams (A1 to C1) and the TestDaf exam as well as the telc C1 Hochschule exam (prerequisite for studying at German universities). However, in order to get to know the exam format, we recommend that you take part in one of our exam preparation courses.
