German language courses
German is one of the world's most widely spoken languages. In the European Union, it is the mother tongue of the largest number of people, and thanks to the extensive business activities that German companies have in Slovakia, the study of German is quite useful and advantageous. The in-class courses take place in Piešťany and for companies in the surrounding towns as well. For all students, even those outside the region, we offer online courses.
SKYPERS language school offers German courses for all ages and levels.
Language course levels we offer
General group courses
The groups have a fixed weekly schedule and a basic course lasts three trimesters (nine months), which students pay for one trimester (three months) at a time. The length of the lesson is 2 x 45 min. This method has proved particularly useful for people who are busy at work or otherwise and cannot attend a language course more than once a week.
Individual courses – VIP 1 and VIP 2
In the event you would like to take a one-to-one course (one student, one teacher), or you are only two (partners, co-workers, etc.), you can use our VIP program. We guarantee that the teacher will focus only on you and that no other students will be included in your mini-group.
In the VIP program, students pay for a course monthly, and the course does not have to have a precise schedule, as the number and frequency of lessons are determined by the participants themselves. In the case of an individual course, we try to adapt it to your requirements - time, frequency, length of the lesson, length of the course and, of course, its content.
State language exams in German
The state language test certificate is accepted at Slovak universities, as well as in the Czech Republic. It serves as proof of knowledge of a foreign language at the proclaimed level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages in state and public administration - as well as in the private sector. Our lecturers will be happy to introduce you to the content of the exam and the strategies for passing it. The lessons are individual in terms of the syllabus corresponding to the selected type of exam. At SKYPERS, we will help you prepare for the state exam level B2 (graduation exam level) or the general state exam C1.

Preparation for Goethe-Zertifikat
If you want to prepare for studying in Germany or working in a German-speaking country while at the same time obtaining an official and internationally recognized certificate, then the Goethe-Zertifikat is suitable for you. By passing the B2 level exam, you will demonstrate that you understand the basic content of complex texts on specific and abstract topics and can speak spontaneously enabling you to communicate with native Germans without any problems. The higher level of the Goethe-Zertifikat C1 confirms readiness for university studies in Germany and a very advanced language level. However, before taking the test, it is recommended that you contact the university where you plan to study in advance to see if they accept this test instead of the German entrance test.
