CORONA CRISIS: Due to the Corona pandemic, the ISSK will be offering its foreign language courses and placement in the winter semester 2020/21 tests online.
You can find our current foreign language courses in the winter semester 2020/21 on JOGU-StINe.
- employees of the University of Mainz
- ERASMUS students
The registration for the language courses proceeds via Jogustine - Studies - Modules/Courses - Registration - Module/Course registration - Additional qualifications. The registration is possible only outside term time. Please make sure you have got a valid TAN-list and use only your university email account for any sort of communication with the ISSK. The participation is only possible with a printout from Tor (Transcript of records) or with the result of the placement test.
Employees of the University of Mainz and ERASMUS students must fill out a registration form (see: downloads) and send it to:
Please note that forms sent before or after the registration phase will not be processed.
Cancellations and change of course are not possible after the end of registration phase. Please note that you have to register for the course level you are allowed to attend – any incorrect registrations will be cancelled by the course management.
If you have prior knowledge in English, French, Spanish, Italian and you haven't attended a language course at ISSK in the last two semesters, you have to take a placement test. All other interested students must submit a proof of their level. This can be the successful completion of one of the ISSK language courses ‘Transcript of Records’ – not older than 2 semesters – or one of the following certificates (see here) – not older than 3 years.
After successful registration the proof of level has to be uploaded (preferably as a screenshot) in the OpenOLAT course – all the information will be given to you before the first lesson by the teacher.
The Online-Placements tests take place before term time. Dates are published in time.
Exchange students please contact: email@example.com for a guest account.
The test consists of single-choice-questions or of C-questions (a sequence of short gap texts).
Yes, you can familiarize yourself with the format of the C-test. The electronic demo-version is accessible for everyone (see right column in the Download section). Follow the instructions for your personal C-test. The result will be shown right after the test.
The students are placed in courses according to the ‘first come – first serve’ principle.
