The teachers were very good and supportive, also very nice. I learned a lot in a short time and also made friends in class. We had fun in class. The lessons were great fun and I learned a lot of German quickly.

Before starting my studies at the University of Stuttgart, I went to an intensive course in the city of Cologne for 4 months, which was a fantastic time in my life. In Stuttgart I was no longer able to attend an intensive course parallel to my university courses, so I found a weekend course for people like me who don’t have time on weekdays. The teacher was very active and motivating, I will continue to learn German here in the weekend course at IFA.
