Education for Adults

The GAI offers a variety of language courses to meet students' goals and expectations. The G100-G600 language courses are built around an immersion-style curriculum to allow students to reach a solid intermediate proficiency (B1 level) in six semesters. 

Beyond that the GAI offers a variety of advanced courses.  Fall and spring semester classes build speaking, reading, writing, listening comprehension, and grammar skills, while conversation classes focus primarily on oral communication.

Throughout the year we will offer shorter session courses including Literature, Conversation, Grammar, and more special topics of interest.   

Short session classes now open for registration
  • Fall Conversation 'Gesprächsrunde' (Intermediate) - Brush up on your conversation skills and improve speaking and language proficiency and enhance your vocabulary
  • Oberstufe Leistungskurs (Advanced) - Literatur unter der Lupe (Aktuelle Kurzgeschichten, Erzählungen & Novellen) - Dieser Kurs ist für Teilnehmer mit fortgeschrittenen Sprachkenntnissen. Fokus ist freies Sprechen & Diskussion im Kontext, Lesen, Wortschatz und Grammatik.
