The Language Center at RWTH Aachen University offers members of the university innovative and academic language courses in German as a Foreign Language and in 15 foreign languages. We are an intercultural and open-minded team. The teaching staff, which consists predominantly of native speakers, has three primary tasks: the enhancement of the international mobility of RWTH students in their academic studies and careers; the integration of international students and researchers from partner universities; and the development of practice-oriented courses that take into account the specialization in engineering and natural sciences of RWTH Aachen University in both research and teaching.
