We have more than 7 levels. Since we work according to the 'Common European Framework of language learning and teaching' which also describes the different language levels, we have - according to this scheme- 6 levels (beginnersI|II; intermediate I|II and advanced I|II).Since class size is max. 12 - especially during summer sessions -we have at least 10 classes with different levels (placement is being done very carefully also takingeven slight language ability differences into consideration).
The min. age for participationts 17. The average age of participants is 25.
We have developed a method to make this possible even with absolute beginners. We think it's the best way to learn the language fast and efficiently.
We grant semester hours of credit through our partnerships with a number of US universities ('Alabama in Austria' is one of the cooperation programs) credit transfer is no problemat all.From July 2005 we will also offer an MA program (also in cooperation with the University of Alabama).
We do not only offer German courses but also English, Italian and Slovene courses all of them exclusively being taught by native speakers.
