German Intensive Courses in Munich
Join a German Intensive Course and get a head start in conversation. Communication in various spontanious situations is practiced in small groups. Participants are encouraged to speak with each other, practice the newly learned vocabulary as well as expressions in situational role-plays. This is a very effective method motivating the group to learn and practice the language together.
Native speakers and bilingual German language trainers lead you through the required curriculum for all levels of intensive courses. They make sure you master the language with the help of most updated and diversified learning methods. Learning a language with passion while enjoying meeting people from various cultures is the motto.
The good thing about the German Intensive Course is that before and after the course you have plenty of time to explore Munich and its surroundings, do sports, go out, utilize your spare time. This means you´re not only learning the language, you´re also living it – a perfect balance between a language course and leisure time.
The Intensive Course Structure
The Intensive German Courses usually welcome 4 to 8 participants per class from all the over world. There can be more participants during the high season, which takes place from about mid-June to the end of August. Generally the summer months have a higher number of learners, especially of younger age due to the vacation time.
At Dialog, you can attend the German Intensive Courses at all levels. According to the European Reference Framework, there are six learning levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, and C2. We subdivided these levels, (i.e. A1.1, A1.2, A2.1, A2.2, etc.) so that we can tailor the lessons exactly to your knowledge of German. This way, we can provide you with the appropriate learning content matched even more precisely with your level.
Before the course starts, we will find out what level you are at in a short assessment interview. If you already have some knowledge of German, you can start the intensive course on any Monday.
Dialog Tips For Beginners
You should spend time and prepare for the course if you are planning to book the course short-term or last-minute. Indulge your mind in the new language, listen to its melody and rhythm, familiarize yourself with its intonation and logic. If you do, it´ll be so much easier for you to participate in a beginners Intensive Course.
The shorter-term you book the language course, the more you should prepare for it. If you have already taken a look at the new language, your mind has become accustomed to the intonation, rhythm and logic of the German language. Therefore the intensive course in Munich will go much easier for you.
For those who wish for a particularly intensive and effective start in the new language, we created the German Crash Course for levels A1 and A2. In the morning you take part in the intensive course, in the afternoon you learn in a mini-group. This way you complete one whole level in just 3 weeks.
German Lessons and Your Trainers
In the German Intensive Course we focus on your active and passive language skills, and make you develop your speaking ability in a short time. Perhaps 4 x 45 minute lessons per day seem like a lot to you at the beginning. However, since the lessons are designed in an entertaining way, your time will fly by without notice. We alternate between exercises with different objectives, e.g. pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, expresions, role plays, etc.
Verbal communication is the main focus of each German course. Especially if you are still a beginner, speaking and listening is very important. During the lessons you will actively participate in many hands-on/useful exercises, discussions and role plays.
In the Intensive Courses we work with proven and proficient textbooks, which you can purchase from our office in the language school. Additional teaching materials (e.g. current newspaper articles, internet worksheets, extra grammar exercises) can be obtained directly from our language trainers and are of course included in the course price.
Examinations in the Language School
In the Intensive Courses, we offer examination preparation for these exams: TestDaF, DSH, and all telc examinations (German A1 to C1 and C1 University). Telc examinations can be taken directly at the language school and you will receive an internationally recognized certificate.
The official Telc German examination certificate is an important document, verifying your proficiency in German language. It is necessary in many fields of the student or professional life, and required by many authorities in order to process various documents such as entry to a German university, employment in Germany, and German citizenship. You can also take the exam just for your own satisfaction of achieving that personal goal.
Possible Course Combinations
The German Intensive Courses are set up in a way which allows you to complete one full level in about 4 weeks, depending on your learning ability. For example, if you come to the school as a complete beginner, upon finishing the initial Intensive Course you will be able to understand rudimentary German expressions and participate in basic German small talk.
Individual Training And Pronunciation
If you feel you´re not catching up in the German Intensive Course, or you want to focus on a particular content , or you have a need to repeat particular grammar or vocabulary, do enhance your learning by joining an Individual Course. It is also worth taking a look at pronunciation and listening comprehension in the individual lessons. We recommend the additional Pronunciation Training to all participants already at the beginner level.
Changing Between Course Types
Many of our participants start with the Intensive Courses in order to quickly immerse themselves in the language and effectively acquire the basics. Once they familiarize themselves with the language, perhaps they want to change the pace or they now have a job which allows them less time to particiapte in a daytime course. Then the participants can switch to the Evening German Course.
At Dialog, this change is possible without unnecessary red tape and extra costs. The material you learned can sink in and the brain can process the new information.
If you don´t use it, you lose in … German Courses via Skype
In order to not lose what you have learned in your German courses, we offer the German Course via Skype so that you can stay in practice and won´t forget your language aims and objectives. Wherever you may be in this big wide world, all you need is the internet connection and our language trainers come to you.
