Carl Duisberg Berlin (CDC) About the

  • With over 45 years experience as an international language provider, teaching German as a foreign language has always had an important focus in the work of Carl Duisberg Centren. The German Language Courses are offered in Berlin, Cologne, Munich and Radolfzell on Lake Constance. At the Carl Duisberg Training Centers students will be taught by experienced trainers, who all have a university degree. In lessons great emphasis is put on training communication skills. The learning progress is measured according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Prior to the start of the course students' actual language ability will be assessed by a placement test. On course completion they will receive an official certificate of attendance. At various stages of the course program, students can have their improvement documented by taking the internationally recognized telc examinations. Naturally, at the four Carl Duisberg Training Centers, a media resource center with a multitude of teaching materials is available. This also includes computer learning programs for self study. Students will receive all books and materials used in the lessons free of charge which can then be kept at the end of the course. Additionally, there are no extra costs for registration, placement test and weekly interim tests. For those who decide to learn a foreign language in the country where it is spoken, they will also get to know the culture, customs and ways of its inhabitants. The same applies to the language course in Germany.
