Our language school offers
Language Courses at F+U
The non-profit F+U Group of Companies is one of the largest private education providers in Germany. It has centres throughout the Federal Republic as well as in other European countries and cooperates with state and private education providers all over the world. In the capital city of Berlin, F+U specialises in professional and continuing further education, as well as commercial retraining and qualifications.
The well-established, successful dual model bachelor degree programmes and the modern distance, full-time and dual master’s programmes at the University of Applied Sciences for Business, Technology and Culture (Hochschule für Wirtschaft, Technik und Kultur - HWTK) offer young people practice-focused education that is increasingly orientated to international students - and now also taught in English.
Since 2013, the F+U Academy Of Languages Berlin has further developed this range of programmes with academically demanding language and computer courses of an international calibre. The Berlin school is thereby continuing a tradition first begun in 1980 in the romantic Neckar city of Heidelberg. The parent of all F+U language schools, the Academy Of Languages Heidelberg welcomes over 10,000 learners and examination candidates from over 100 countries every year and is one of the largest and most successful language schools in Germany. Additional schools in Tenerife and Darmstadt have gone on to expand the scope and location of the courses offered.
Whether they are international students keen to improve their German in readiness for higher education or prepare for the Feststellungsprüfung with the help of our International Prep School; or local people aiming to improve their foreign language skills, for example in Business English or TOEFL preparation - all of our language learners in Berlin can profit from this innovative network of teaching experience and educational competence. Our flexible in-house training is also the preferred solution for companies and diplomatic representatives.
