Learn new languages with the support of the EBS Language Center

EBS Language Center

Languages open horizons

Nelson Mandela once said: “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” We have taken this critical learning into account since the foundation of EBS Universität – it is not surprising that internationality is a crucial component of our studies. With our language training, we prepare you comprehensively for your study abroad. Besides that, we support you in learning, further developing and improving your knowledge of foreign languages while studying. By obtaining an additional language qualification, other language areas can be accessed – thus simultaneously increasing the number of partner universities selected.

Language courses

At EBS Universität, you can improve a foreign language or learn a new one from our full range of language courses. By gaining an additional language qualification, you can open up other language areas for your study abroad to increase the number of partner universities of your choice.

  • Chinese, English, French and Spanish
  • Upon request: Arabic, Korean, Japanese, Italian and Russian

These courses are offered at various levels as outlined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Regular tuition enables students to improve their language skills quickly and effectively. The courses run supplementary to the standard curriculum. Students benefit from our certified language teachers’ expertise and learning in small groups in all classes.

German instruction forms an integral part of our international students’ curriculum in the Bachelor, Master and MBA programmes. In addition to grammar and vocabulary, we focus on listening and speaking skills. An introduction to German culture further enhances the learning experience.

Students benefit from our certified language teachers’ expertise and learning in small groups in all courses.

Preparatory and Intensive Courses

It would help if you did not underestimate language and general aptitude tests; they require a certain amount of preparation to achieve the desired result. We help you to maximise your test score and achieve success.

German intensive courses

We offer intensive courses at various levels to students interested in improving or enhancing their German language skills. The intensive courses in January and August, comprising half a language competence group, are offered before each semester, particularly beneficial to our exchange students. The summer school courses are more comprehensive in May and provide an entire progression level.
