C1 - courses

The C1-courses consistently improve your language skills and enable students to use the language proficiently.
If you have already learned German on your own or in another way and reach level B2 in a free placement test, the C1-course is the right choice for you.
The teaching language will be exclusively German. Authentic and current topics related to study and work will be discussed in class. Students will be prepared to face professional and social life.
At the end of the course students will be able to understand demanding topics and act and speak in complex situations relevant to their further studies and work.
C1 is a prerequisite for a TWIN certificate at FHWS.
