Superintensive german course 24 units / week
This course is an upgrade to the regular course and contains 4 more hours a week in which we implement an active conversation and profundization of the spoken language, including phonetic and pronunciation exercises. The course is valid for the application of a Visum, in fact it contains 24 units a week which is more the 18 hours / week. Some embassies don’t accept the 20 unit-course (because 1 unit is 45 minutes) and ask directly for at least 24 units/week.

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!
