The Center

The Excellence Center in Europe provides many different opportunities for nationals and internationals. Our main goals are to develop a fully comprehensive curriculum, which is relevant to the non-native Arabic speaker, and to effectively plan lessons to offer high-quality language training.

Another goal of the Center is to bring internationals from every corner in the world to Germany to learn about the country, the culture, and the language. One of the most important goals of the Excellence Center in Europe is to contribute to the integration process of refugees living in Germany. With the Center being located in Germany, internationals will have a unique opportunity to learn more about the refugees within the country during their stay.

In addition, the Center will also offer English courses to Germans.
