Please ensure that you only register for your previously determined course level. Registrations for courses not according to the registrants language level cannot be considered and will be deleted (automatically) by the course management.
Important Note: Only one registration per language is permitted. Multiple registration (whether for different levels or for parallel courses e.g. S-A1a and A1b etc.) will be deleted entirely (all registrations!). This means that no participation in a language course will be possible in the winter semester 2023/24.
If you have prior knowledge in English, French, Spanish, Italian and you have not attended a language course at ISSK in the last two semesters, a placement test is required. 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. If you have a standardized proof of language proficiency, please send an email to your teacher after course registration.
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. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you cannot attend the course.
