  Carl Duisberg (CDC)- RadolfzellAbout the
With over 45 years experience as an international language provider, teaching German as a foreign language has always had an important focus in the work of Carl Duisberg Centren. The German Language Courses are offered in Berlin, Cologne, Munich and Radolfzell on Lake Constance. At the Carl Duisberg Training Centers students will be taught by experienced trainers, who all have a university degree. In lessons great emphasis is put on training communication skills. The learning progress is measured according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Prior to the start of the course students' actual language ability will be assessed by a placement test. On course completion they will receive an official certificate of attendance. At various stages of the course program, students can have their improvement documented by taking the internationally recognized telc examinations. Naturally, at the four Carl Duisberg Training Centers, a media resource center with a multitude of teaching materials is available. This also includes computer learning programs for self study. Students will receive all books and materials used in the lessons free of charge which can then be kept at the end of the course. Additionally, there are no extra costs for registration, placement test and weekly interim tests. For those who decide to learn a foreign language in the country where it is spoken, they will also get to know the culture, customs and ways of its inhabitants. The same applies to the language course in Germany.

Placement in a Private Boarding School (Internat)

Carl Duisberg Centren organize placements at renowned boarding schools, where you study and live under the same roof. Your parents make a targeted investment in the allround supervision of a private school, where the individuality of each student is fostered and one's own potential and strengths are discovered.
By attending our selected private schools for several years students are able to
1. Acquire linguistic and intercultural competence
2. Take the Abitur (internationally recognized school leaving examination)
3. Gain the right to direct admission to university in Germany
4. Develop and strengthen their personality
5. Lay the foundations for future networks
For attendance at a boarding school the students must take an admission test, which usually tests their knowledge of German as well as their knowledge of other subjects (e.g. Mathematics and English). If the student's German is not sufficient for successful attendance at school (minimum CEF-Level B2), then you can join the "Fit for School" preparatory course at the Carl Duisberg Training Center in Radolfzell on Lake Constance.

Preparation of German Testing for Hopeful University Students
In order to enroll into German universities, students must sufficiently prepare their German language abilities.
These abilities are assessed by two tests
DSH(German language test for international students enrolling into German University) tests are taken at the University before the start of the semester.
TestDaF DSH tests can be taken all over the world at various language learning facilities and institutions. These tests are available to be taken 6 times per year.
Carl Duisberg Center offers the TestDaF test.
German universities require one of these tests as one of its prerequisites to apply, and also require you take a separate German entrance exam. The Carl Duisberg Centrum provides the best lectures (Intensive Lecture Plus) in preparation for these exams. Through these lectures, students will be able to become accustomed to other types of tests as well that are required by the universities.
The DSH is the German language test provided by the Universities themselves, which are then taken by international students. Through our guidance and enrollment service “ACCESS”, students will be enrolled into various schools and prepare for the exam. They will be provided the best classes and lectures, and will also be provided practice exams.
The TestDaF is the German language test provided by language learning centers all around the world. The TestDaF is split into 4 sections
All 4 of these sections will be taught in-depth at the Carl Duisberg Center.
College Entrance Exams
If your chosen university requires a separate college entrance exam, you must also prepare for this as well. Through our guidance and enrollment service “ACCESS”, we will take responsibility of all other prerequisites required by the university. Therefore, students will be able to focus on their examination. They will be provided the best classes and lectures. The Carl Duisberg Centrum also provides practice entrance exams for universities located in Bayern as well.
