In cooperation with the university’s language Center, Dahlem Research School offers two intensive German language courses before the summer semester starts (March 6 – April 13, 2017). Both are free of charge. One is for absolute beginners and the other one is for beginners with little knowledge of German (level A1). There are only two criteria to fulfill: proving to be a doctoral candidate at Freie Universität Berlin (scan of Student ID Card, the "Immatrikulationsbescheinigung" of Freie Universität Berlin), and having no or little prior knowledge of German.
The workshop is part of FUBright for International Doctoral Candidates. This program offers you supportive services to help you cope successfully with the additional challenges you may face as an international doctoral candidate. All events are free of charge. More information about the program can be received here.
