Summer German Course at the Coast 2017

The best place to learn German is in Germany! That is why Jade University is offering the Summer German Course for the 21st time, this year from 1st until 24th August 2017 in Wilhelmshaven.

During the duration of the course the students can improve their German language skills in small groups supervised by professional teachers. At the end every participant will receive a confirmation of participation. The course equals 6ETCS.

This course is particularly suited for those who are planning to study in Germany, but also for anyone who would like to improve their German language skills. Minimum age: 18 years.


Five hours of lessons take place in small groups each morning. The afternoons are used to put theory into practice. Placement tests are first conducted in order to find the right course for each participant.
It is our goal to train the participants’ communicative skills: everyday conversations are practiced to train pronunciation, improve listening skills and use correct grammar. Various cultural topics are worked out in projects or in presentations.

A special offer of afternoon activities includes:

  • Intercultural Training
    In this course you will learn to strengthen your sensitivity for possible differences among other cultures` ways of thinking, communicating and acting. The acquired knowledge can directly be applied within the training.

  • German for Engineers
    In this course you will learn technical vocabulary which is relevant in the field of Engineering. Moreover, you will get the chance to improve your skills in reading formulas.

  • Pronounciation Practice
    In this course you will practise the right pronounciation and accentuation of German words and phrases.

  • TestDaF-Exam-Preparation
    "Test für Deutsch als Fremdsprache" (Test for German as a Foreign Language)- this is a language test/- certificate which a lot of German universities request as a proof of the German language. In case you are planning to do the test in order to apply for studies in Germany, this course is very helpful for you.

At the end of the course students will not only have deepened their knowledge of Germany andits culture, but also will have become much more competent with German and will have made manynew friends!
