Since the courses for the other levels (for students with previous knowledge) run the whole year (except 2 weeks for Christmas), it is possible to start every Monday by taking a placement test or trying for free in the course you are interested in. Please call us at +49 761 6105060 to ask if there are still free places in the groups.
The biggest problem of the traditional language courses might probably be that the groups are mostly composed from students who don’t have the same motivation. This happens mainly because of two facts: many language schools tend to overfill the courses, due to the high costs of the courses, which are cofinanced by the Government. On the other side many language schools don’t give importance to the Placement Tests. Some participants (especially in the Integration Courses) are not motivated enough and this can disturb the correct progress of the Course.
Along the years we have been focussed on developing methods, in order to solve this problem, to form groups of students who are motivated to reach the goal of improving their knowledge of the german language. We finally have introduced the Quality-Control System. What is it?
At the beginning we pay considerable attention to the placement. At the end of every Level there are Zwischentests (intermediate tests)which give us an image of the progress of all the students. In order to attend the next level a student has to score at least 50% of the points. The school management is continously in contact with the teachers and helps them by evaluating their impressions concerning the students and the test results and administrating the group.
In addition the work at ISD is strongly target-oriented. Our interest and our biggest joy is that every course participant fully uses his capability in learning german, in order to reach a successful goal, no matter if this is to pass an exam or just improve the language for the work or the everyday life.
The school management requires from the teachers a very detailed documentation about the course progress, the results and the regularity of the participation, including for example in doing homework. This means that every effort of our work tends to one goal: to offer You the possibility to learn German by investing your money and your time the right way!

Training for DSH, TestDaF or telc
For the DSH and TestDaF and for all telc-exams ISD offers special courses as one-on-one training courses, or for 2 participants.
Our experience tells us that every single applicant needs a specific, personalized training to improve exactly in the fields which cause him or her most difficulty (for example in using prepositions with the appropriate case, in the declination of adjectives, in sentence construction, in writing, in listening, etc.). On the very first day the applicant can take a simulated test, for us to find out in which field he/she needs more help. After this we can plan a personalized Training to work directly where it’s necessary without losing time. Only in this way can we offer you an efficient course. Only in this way can you optimize your skills and your potential and improve your performance during the exam.
