IntensivPLUS course

Our IntensivPLUS German courses have 24 lessons (20+4) per week

You will attend our Intensive Course and have 4 extra lessons per week*. The advantage of the extra hours is that topics from the Intensive Course can be repeated and there is enough time to practice both theory and practical skills.

TANDEM Köln offers IntensivPLUS German courses for all levels all year round. Classes take place from 9.30 to 14.00 or from 13.15 to 17.45. Participants with previous knowledge can join ongoing courses at any time after consulting 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 IntensivPLUS courses can also be booked as hybrid courses!

*Please note that our courses K1-K5 still have 20 course days, but only start every 5 weeks. We use this 5th week to make up for lost course days due to illness or imposed quarantine. Therefore the 5th course week cannot be booked regularly! In the months of April, May and June we also make up for days lost due to public holidays in the 5th course week. These are 2 April, 5 April, 1 May, 13 May, 24 May and 3 June. The course price remains the same of course! 

Our registration fee covers the course confirmation, placement test, information package, certificate of attendance and class material in the form of photocopies as well as your first course book. We would also be glad to help you find a language exchange partner.

The teaching material we use for our German classes are "Spektrum" for levels A1 - A2 and for B1 - B2 and above, "Aspekte neu" (published by Klett). Both consist of a student's book and a workbook including an audio CD and can be purchased at our school (price between € 15,00 and € 20,99 per month).

In addition to our regular German classes, students can take part in TANDEM Cologne's special Cultural Programme, offered at least once a week. This colourful programme has a variety of excursions and events to offer which take place in the afternoons or evenings (transportation are not included in the price).
