Do you have questions about our German courses? Do you need specific advice? (Please note: We do not answer questions about visa procedures or finding accommodation in Jena.)
We offer an office hour via Zoom. The application can be made by email on our Team DaF. Please write the subject of your request in the subject line. You will then receive an invitation to the zoom meeting.
You can learn German as an absolute beginner or you can improve your pre-existing language skills with us.
In our German courses, the four basic language skills of listening, reading, speaking, and writing are systematically developed and practised. Additionally, the study of phonetics, i.e. the correct pronunciation of words and phrases, plays a major role. Grammar teaching alone is no longer a key aspect of the modern teacing of German as a Foreign Language. Instead, Grammar skills complement the basic language skills.
In addition to the regular courses during the semester, covering the language levels from A1 to C2 according to the Common European Framework of References for Languages (CEFR), we also offer intensive courses at selected levels, both during the semester and in the pre-sessional period in September.
Our courses are primarily for the benefit of students of the University Jena. If there is spare capacity, students of other German institutes of higher education, Doctoral students of the University Jena or other German institutes of higher education as well as employees of the FSU and guests are welcome to join our courses, too.
To independently expand and practise the skills gained in our courses, you may want to pay a visit to the self-access tutorials in the Multi-Media Centre (MMZ). Here, modern language learning software and tutors will support your learning progress.
