Welcome to the Department of German as a Foreign Language

In the department Deutsch als Fremdsprache (German as a Foreign Language), we promote the language skills of foreign language students. We offer a variety of German language courses specifically designed for academic purpose that take place both during the semester and in the semester break. We hold the DSH (entrance exam for university registration) and support students in all matters regarding a systematic and efficient language acquisition.

Dear students,

 due to the Corona crisis we are experiencing various difficulties at the language center and have to react flexible to a dynamic situation. We hope you understand that we cannot always answer all your questions.

 Please consider the following information regarding course certificates (Leistungsscheine) for the previous and course registration for the following semester.

We would also like to direct you to the following website of Freie Universität for a regular update of information: https://www.fu-berlin.de/sites/coronavirus/index.html

Your DaF team (German as a foreign language)
