Intensive Courses

Our Intensive German Course with 20+5 or Super-Intensive with 20+10 lessons per week*.

You attend our Standard Course and have an extra 5 lessons of "workout" per week. The extra hours have the advantage that topics from the intensive course can be repeated and there is enough time to practise practical skills as well as theory.

In our Super-Intensive Course, in addition to the Intensive Course, you have additional 5 lessons per week in the afternoon, in which "Grammar & Conversation" form the main focus of the lessons.

TANDEM Cologne offers German Intensive Courses for all levels all year round. Classes are held from 9.30 to 14.00 or 14:45. Participants with previous knowledge of German can join current courses at any time after consultation with the office and after a placement test.

In groups of 5 to 10 students, we guarantee a fast learning success and the improvement of your German language skills in a relaxed and communicative atmosphere. It is important to us that the groups are homogeneous and that the participants are at the right level after a thorough written and oral assessment. For this reason, individual courses may have a maximum of 12 participants.

* If there are only 3 participants, the number of hours will be reduced to 3 lessons per week. If there are 2 participants, the number of hours will be reduced to 2 lessons and if there are 1 participant, the number of hours will be reduced to 1 lesson.


On request our Intensive Course can also be booked as hybrid courses!

In addition to our regular German classes, students can take part in TANDEM Cologne's special Cultural Programme, offered at least once a week.
