Languages open horizons

Internationality is an important aspect of studying at EBS Universität. Therefore, it is a very important matter of course for us that you receive a good education in language and culture. The EBS Language Centre supports you in learning, expanding or improving foreign languages during your studies.

Language courses

We offer a wide range of language courses. On the one hand, these are already integrated into the Degree Programmes of EBS Universität or can be taken by students of EBS Universität (optional) or language interested students.

Chinese, English, French, Spanish, German:
These languages are offered at different levels according to the GER (Gemeinsamer Europäischer Referenzrahmen für Sprachen).

Russian, Arabic, Korean, Japanese, Italian:
These languages are offered at different levels according to GER and depending on the demand.

In addition to grammar and the development of your own vocabulary, your first steps in a new language will be complemented by learning about the cultural characteristics of your language. You will also benefit from the excellent and intensive training of native speakers in small groups.
