Adult Division

Classes for adults are held on a semester basis, with 15 two-hour classes comprising a semester. Participants have a choice of Beginners-, Continuing-, B1-Intermediate- and B2-Intermediate to C1-Advanced classes, each conducted over two semesters. The B2 class runs for 4 semesters and C1 is open and will change content based on the requests of the students.

The venues for the Adult classes are:

  • Erindale College, parking outside the college and the leisure center. (A1-higher levels depend on enrolment numbers)

Additional activities

We also offer students from all our courses to join us at our free conversation evening. Once a month we get together to enjoy a beer, some food or just good company. Alternatively we might organize a “German” activity (for example to see a German movie or to go to a German, Austrian or Swiss event)
