German Language Courses
The Tutorial™ á La Carte
The Tutorial™ á La Carte is based on the University of Oxford’s educational tradition, which imparts lessons tailored to the individual’s needs.
Rigorous in nature, the Tutorial guarantees the transformation of each student into an excellent bilingual communicator.
Communicative activities such as public speaking, brainstorming in teams, interviews and negotiation are staged within an authentic context to develop
a confident level of German fluency.
2 or 3 tutors will be assigned to each participant, and “á La Carte” allows the scholars to choose between 3, 4 or 6 hours of lessons each day.
Through specifically selected materials, Tutorial™ á La Carte offers ample opportunity to develop linguistic competence. The student can prepare
for international German exams or hone their proficiency in a professional domain through the study of their field’s particular vocabulary.
