Languages open horizons

Internationality is key to studying at the EBS Universität. Therefore, a good grounding in language and culture is particularly important to us. The EBS Language Centre supports you in learning, further developing and improving your knowledge of foreign languages while you study.

Language courses

We offer you a wide range of language courses:

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

These languages are offered at various levels in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Students can take these courses optionally - an ideal preparation for their semester abroad.

  • German courses are also an integral part of the language offer, in the Bachelor’s, Master’s and MBA programmes.

In addition to grammar and vocabulary, activity-oriented speaking, improved pronunciation, listening and reading comprehension and an introduction to the cultural characteristics of the respective country further enhance the language programme.

In all courses, students benefit from the expertise of our certified language teachers and learning in small groups.
