General German Language Course



All courses build on the 4 fundamentals: listening, writing, reading and speaking. Free class discussions, role-playing and conversation help develop verbal expression, vocabulary and good sentence structure.


Grammar is not studied in isolation, rather it is packed in informative and stimulating texts that provide valuable cultural, political and historical background. Some topics covered include: relationships, social life, jobs and labour, history of Germany, cultural identity.


The German course at International House Kharkiv is fun, and practical lessons will help you get to grips with German quickly whether you are studying for business or pleasure.

Our experienced teachers will help you to quickly gain confidence using German. Learning in small groups of no more than 12 students, you will explore the language using conversational practice, internet resources, TV programmes and audio resources to really bring the language to life.
