Our policy and principles:

  • We offer the highest possible standard of language teaching. We employ only high qualified language trainers. We are a licensed ZD and TestDaF examination centre and also entitled to conduct BAMF (Federal Office for Immigration and Refugees) courses. Our teaching method combines intensive language training and project work with practical application.
  • We offer reasonable and variable rates. Wherever possible, we will arrange for our clients to pay a reduced fee, or be exempted from payment altogether.
  • We are customer-oriented and flexible, offering everything from adult literacy courses to preparation for TestDaF examinations. We undertake individual counseling of each student and students are given regular opportunities to evaluate all aspects of the courses.
  • We promote integration in both social and workplace contexts. We include appropriate elements in our course program such as urban rallies, projects, computer-based learning, special conversation courses, film workshops and extra-curricular activities as excursions.
  • We work in accordance with the latest linguistic findings and conduct research ourselves. Our projects are academically supervised by the University of Kassel.
  • We believe in ongoing training. Our teaching staff takes part in internal and external training courses on an on-going basis. Thus, we ensure language courses on high standard with modern media, the latest teaching works and new methods.
  • We have a close and varied collaboration and cooperation network. Our network includes, for example, connections with other regional and national institutions, the University of Kassel, international universities, DAAD, local and regional working groups and the social service sections and other joint programs of the Diakonie and Caritas charities.
  • We live Teamwork as our main principle. We always have two instructors in our language courses as well as in our projects. We have monthly discussions and work review sessions, plan the work ahead of us and make policy decisions.
  • We are international. Our staff is international as well as our institute itself. We have various cooperation schemes with international universities. We also do integration groundwork in students’ native countries and are represented at international trade fairs and conferences.
  • We are committed to continuous quality assurance. We conduct regular, sophisticated quality audits.
