Students

Conversation Hours

Conversation Hours are open to all and require no advanced knowledge in the desired language. Multiple languages are offered every academic semester. Feel free to inquire about any language that isn't listed in the schedule.

“While many students might feel afraid to make mistakes in a class room situation, they probably won't in the relaxed atmosphere of the conversation hours. Here everyone is encouraged to make mistakes. Simply try to express what's on your mind in the foreign language you learn. That has encouraged me to attend one of the conversation hours many times and surely helped me to speak more fluently, also during class”
Basti Lehman, Class of 2020
