For efficient and successful exam preparation, we recommend either a German course on campus in Bamberg, which consists of group lessons in the morning and flexible additional individual lessons in the afternoon with 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 private lessons per week. Or, for those who may not have the time for any full-time classroom teaching, there is the possibility of online exam preparation as online German course. Please calculate for all courses, whether online or on-site at least 1 of hour course pre and post preparation. This way you make sure to make the most of the lesson time with your teacher.
