German Course began
29. Sep. 2020
This year's course "German as a Foreign Language" began on Monday, September 28, 2020. Director Aila Stammler welcomed the participants, who came from Burundi, Ghana, India, Syria, the Czech Republic and the USA.
German as a Foreign Language has been a part of Friedensau Adventist University (FAU) since 1993. Course participants with basic knowledge (at least GER A1 level) can prepare for their language exams for university qualification in three quarters. For prospective students without previous knowledge of the German language, we offer a beginners' course. The aim of both courses is the TestDaF or telc C1 Hochschule certificate (in German as a Foreign Language, which entitles the holder to study at German universities). For the students in the advanced course, it is possible to reach the level for this examination after one year. Experience suggests that beginners need 1.5 to two years.
Since 2003, FAU has also been part of the ACA (Adventist Colleges Abroad) consortium. This program enables students from the USA to spend a year in Germany and study German as their major or minor. More: https://www.thh-friedensau.de/en/german-course/
