Learning German at the University

The department "Deutsch als Fremdsprache" of the University of Tuebingen

The department „Deutsch als Fremdsprache“ (German as a foreign language) offers two courses especially for international PhD students and guest scientists where no prior knowledge is necessary – but also many other classes more for advanced learners (such as grammar, conversation, academic writing, German literature or German cultural studies).

 

Please keep in mind that those special classes for PhD students and guest scientists usually are booked very soon – if you are interested in taking part, you better register as soon as possible (for example in February for summer Semester classes starting in April).

 

You can find more information about the different classes and the registration process here and the courses especially for PhD students and guest scientists here.

 

By the way:

If you are interested in finding a conversation partner in order to improve your German, the Tandem program will help you find a language partner ("Tandem"). Your language partner will generally be a native speaker of German wishing to learn your mother tongue.

 

The department also offers intercultural trainings (for example "How do Germans tick?", "Intercultural competence").

The "Interkulturelle Sprechstunde" (intercultural consultation-hour) taking place on Mondays, 1 pm to 2 pm, in Wilhelmstraße 22, room 306, offers advice if you wonder how your German colleagues, landlords, friends ... behave.
