Do you want to feel more comfortable in your (German-speaking) environment and to communicate better?

Learn a new language or improve your language skills! Learning languages is fun and connects you with other people, and you learn a lot about the traditions, lifestyles and ways of thinking of other countries. In addition, multilingualism offers better career opportunities.

Choose from our range of semester-long courses in German, English or French or attend our German intensive course during the semester break. The language courses we offer are provided by the Language Learning Institute (SLI) of the University of Freiburg. Participation in the language courses is free of charge for you.
