Level 1, 2 and 3

These courses cover essential and basic German: grammar, vocabulary, spoken and written German. We will talk about life in Germany, its economy, its political and cultural affairs. You will learn to express your ideas in writing and cope with everyday life speaking German. At the end of the course you should be able to converse freely in German, even about complex issues.

In excursions designed to establish close rapport between the student and the country’s history and culture, you will get to know more of Dortmund and its surroundings.

At PDL you don’t simply learn excellent standard German, called Hochdeutsch, but also colloquial speech enabling you to communicate with friends and other students during your leisure time. The somewhat formalized textbook German is complemented by films and audiotapes covering the vocab and lingo of young Germans.

Additionally, we offer both intra and extramural soccer so you can stay in shape and link up with former students to find out more about life in Germany.
