German Language Courses>

The Language Center offers you great opportunities to improve your German language skills as well as learn and train other languages. Besides language courses, there are language tandems, language cafés and much more. 

A German course is definitely advisable, whether you are studying in English or in German. There are German courses at every level. 
Important: If you already have some knowledge of German, you will have to take a placement test to be assigned to the course that suits you best. Please contact jessica.berger@spz.uni-siegen.de as soon as possible. 

If you are studying in German and have already passed the DSH or TestDaF, you should still continue to work on your language skills, for example in the course "Deutsch nach DSH/TestDaF" or in courses such as scientific writing or similar. 

All courses of the Language Center can be found under unisono -> Additional offers -> Veranstaltungen des Sprachenzentrums.
