Which course material is used in class?
In the intensive course, the evening course and the semi-intensive course you work with a course book from A1.1 to C1.2 level as well as with your teacher’s own material. The course book for your German class can be purchased at Deutschothek Language School or at bookstores and costs between 20,60 € – 24,20 €. In the A2 integration course and in the B1 integration course, the course book costs €41.20. In all other courses (e.g. conversation courses, Grammar courses, the course for Business German, C2 courses) a course book is not required and you work with your teacher’s own material. These photo copies and other material are included in the course price and you do not need to pay extra.
