Summer Course in August: Intensive Course for Advanced Learners


This course offers a subject-based German training and provides linguistic foundations (technical terminology, grammatical and general language structures) that are required for engineering-related studies or for professional activities in Germany.

We offer this summer course in cooperation with the Office for International Affairs of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität of Munich and the "Munich International Summer University" (MISU).


  • International students and applicants who want to qualify for technology, natural science and engineering in terms of language;
  • Working people or people in search of a job who want to prepare for an occupation in a German company as technician or engineer.

Language requirements: Level B2 according to CEFR


  • Special lexis for STEM-subjects (e.g. mathematics, mechanical engineering, process engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, industrial engineering, information systems, construction engineering)
  • Grammatical structures and typical linguistic expressions in specialised texts and discourses
  • Strategies for the comprehension of lectures and seminars
  • Acquaintance with tasks, solution methods and corresponding verbalisations in the above-mentioned subjects
