Intensive Courses

Our German Intensive Courses have 20 lessons per week.

TANDEM Cologne offers German intensive courses for all levels all year round. Classes are held from Monday to Friday from 9:30 to 13:00. Participants with previous knowledge of German can join current courses at any time after consultation with the office and a written and oral placement test.

In small groups of 5 - 12 students and in a relaxed and communicative atmosphere, you can quickly improve your German. With our qualified teachers and varied methods, you will learn effectively and with pleasure!

At the monthly final test you can see your learning success :) Should you have any difficulties, you can combine your intensive course with additional lessons in a mini-group or in the form of individual lessons. This ensures that the groups remain homogeneous.

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

In addition to the language course, TANDEM Köln offers a varied cultural programme once a week, in summer two or three times per week.
