Most people take courses between 2 and 4 weeks, but 1 or more than 4 weeks are also possible:
- We offer small German group courses or individual language courses (in standard/high German)
- Tuition is 4 x 45 minute lessons for groups of 3-4/ (seldom 5 or 6) students, from 9:00 in the morning to 12:15, Monday to Friday
- Tuition is 3 x 45 minute lessons for groups of 2 students
- Tuition is 2 x 45 minute lessons if the student is the only one of his/her standard
- You can stay for as many weeks as you would like to, with a minimum of one week
- The course includes participation in the free time programme
Group size: The DIT Weekly Intensive German Group Course has usually classes of up to 3, very seldom one or two persons more per class.
This is a very intensive learning experience. English has got much of German in it, by the way, because of Anglo-Saxon immigration from Germany after the Romans had left Britanny - German is not difficult, thus. (Do you understand: Mein Finger ist warm?)
- You learn a lot faster in such small groups: compare this with learning in a class of 8 or even more people;
- You participate more;
- The challenge is greater;
- You have more control over what you study and what topics or grammar points are discussed or studied;
- You get more individual attention from your teacher;
- You get to know your teacher better as well as your class mates, and there are many other advantages.
Standards: We have people learning German of every standard from absolute beginner to the very advanced (A1 to C2). We ask everyone (except beginners) to take a short test on their first Monday morning so that we can put you into the right class for your standard.
If you are the only person of your particular standard, we do not cancel your course: instead, we offer you a course with full participation in the free time programme etc., but we reduce your lesson time to 2 lessons of 45 minutes per day. You effectively get private lessons at the group rate. The 3rd and 4th lesson you can be a listening guest in another class.
