Answers to the most important questions

How do the online courses work?

The online live courses are carried out entirely as online live lessons using the Zoom conference tool.
Speaking, reading, writing and listening can all be practiced with a headset and webcam.

How do face-to-face classes work during the corona pandemic?

If classes take place as face-to-face classes during the corona pandemic, they will be conducted in accordance with the guidelines available as PDF below.

The Korean authorities have announced increased quarantine measures for the greater Seoul area due to the increase in corona infections. In March 2021, all A1.1 - B1.2 courses for adults will take place in Seoul as face-to-face lessons (alternating daily) with live online mirroring via Zoom. If the social distancing level is raised by the authorities to level 2.5, all courses will be converted to pure online live lessons.

How can I take the placement test for German courses?

We offer an online placement test followed by a telephone interview. Please register online for this!

My German exam was canceled. What's happening now?

All exam participants were automatically re-registered for the next appointment at the respective exam location. If a rebooking is not desired, the full fee can be refunded. All exam participants who have already canceled the exam before this notification can receive a voucher worth 30,000 won as a replacement for the cancellation fee, which can be used for German courses and exams.

For advice and cancellation, please send an email to [email protected]

What do I do with media that I have already borrowed from the library?

The due date of media borrowed before the closure has been automatically extended to April 1, 2021. There are therefore no reminder fees. Further information on using the library can be found on their website.

Reflections for a post-corona time
Afterwards thoughts

A virus shows us how globally networked and at the same time fragile our public life is. What does the pandemic mean for each and every one of us and what does it mean for society? Intellectuals and artists around the world answer this question - with a view to the now and a time after.
