With a view to that, we offer a variety of formats and course contents, ranging from basic language instruction to language for professional and special purposes, to language for travel. You can focus on learning all four skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing – or, in some languages you can learn through conversation. In German, you can prepare to take the German language exams necessary for visas or studies at German universities. View our website and, chances are, you will find what you are looking for!

Our instructors are language professionals who are native or near-native speakers who use up-to-date methodologies and modern technologies to fast-track you to your desired goals. Acquiring language in its cultural context is an integral part of our language philosophy.

As a TII Language Center student you will also benefit from our rich calendar of events related to your language learning and the various cultures we represent.
