FAQ

  1. How about the grouping/assessment? How can I do a German test?

If you live in Graz :
Just call in at our office during office hours. It is always better if we can also speak to you and listen to you in person. That way, we can give you the best possible advice for your German courses.
If you don’t live in Graz:
Please do the online test available on our website.

As general rule: We can’t reserve any German courses in Vienna for you until you have done a test-unless you are a complete beginner.

  1. What is a reservation? When do I have to pay my German course?

Like in a restaurant we reserve a place for you until a certain date. Until that date you can pay for your course whenever you want. After that date, we cannot guarantee that the place in the course will still be available to you.

If you are in another country, you are also welcome to transfer the money for your German courses. In this case it is most important that we receive documentation of the transfer by email. As soon as the money arrives in our account, we will make a firm booking for your German courses in Graz.

Please specify intended use! (participant`s name, course)

After the deadline your booking will be canceled automatically.
