Despite its proximity to France and Luxembourg, incoming students should not expect staff in local government offices, banks or shops to have sufficient language skills to be able to provide assistance in a foreign language. You may find that help is available in the popular foreign languages French and English, but it is unlikely to be the case for other languages.

If you would like to assess your current proficiency in German, an online placement test is available at: www.goethe.de/cgi-bin/einstufungstest/einstufungstest.pl

Before coming to Germany

Ideally you should take German courses already in the year before coming as an exchange student to Germany. If your home university does not offer suitable German courses we recommend the DUO online courses (http://www.deutsch-uni.com). Check with the international office or language centre of your home university whether they offer free DUO licenses.
