Learn a new language!

Because we know that locals are also keen to improve their language skills, the school offers part-time courses in German from beginner level to advanced. Due to the change of law, foreign spouses of German citizens and foreign nationals living in Germany are now only able to obtain a residence permit if they can hold at least simple conversations in German. South Africans who are going to live in Germany have to be able to demonstrate basic skills in the German language (A1) before they arrive. bli runs beginner courses every term. If you are a total beginner you need to study for 3 terms to get to the A1 level. The length of your studies also depends on whether you have previously studied German, are in contact with a lot of German speaking people and if you can dedicate time to do homework.
