About Your Language Institutes
Since emerging from the Herder-Institute of Leipzig University in 1992, the Studienkolleg Sachsen and interDaF am Herder-Institut have worked successfully in the area of German as a foreign language. For more than 25 years, we have combined tradition, innovation, and the ability to adapt with consistent high quality in teaching and mentoring. We offer short-term language courses with a supplementary cultural and regional studies programme on behalf of Leipzig University.
We look back on many years of experience with language courses for future university students and teacher trainings for foreign teachers of German.
Our teachers have a solid education, numerous years of experience, and a wide range of expert knowledge regarding the teaching of German as a foreign language. They are committed to their job, and they are full of ideas on how to apply their skills. They always consider the learners' needs.
The language of instruction is German, right from the first lesson. We teach in a modern and communicative way – to enable our course participants to use the language in real-life situations.
For us, learning German means getting to know and understand the German-speaking regions and countries in their diversity as well. Explorations, excursions, and cultural events offer the opportunity to form your own impressions.
Our support starts well before the beginning of a course – competent consulting on our courses offered is as essential as the procurement of dormitory rooms and assistance with administrative and visa matters.
