Individual adult education for personal and professional goals – effective learning with IQ

"Learning for life" – when it comes to adult education at IQ, that's more than just a cliche! In our numerous language courses, you'll be able to improve your skills effectively and intensively, no matter what level of knowledge you start off with. Throughout Germany we offer a wide selection of courses for you to choose from. Besides adult education courses in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Chinese and Dutch, you can also choose from a range of courses in German as a foreign language and adult literacy. For companies, we also offer customised corporate training programmes for employees and trainees.

Customised adult education at IQ – language courses for beginners all the way to intermediate and advanced level

Perhaps you've always wanted to learn Italian but have never come into contact with the language. Or maybe you'd like to go to Spain for your next holiday but have more or less forgotten everything you learned at school. No problem – with IQ language courses, you'll find what you're looking for! Our courses are designed so flexibly that we can adapt to your personal level of knowledge on an individual basis. Our small groups are an important aspect of that: our adult education courses have a maximum of 10 participants.

Flexible learning boosts success

At IQ, you'll find the perfect language course for every level of language proficiency. All our locations and online lessons offer language courses for beginners and more advanced students, as well as various communication courses. Perhaps you'd like to be more confident when you need to communicate in a foreign language for work? Or do you need a language certificate for your studies or a job? We've got the perfect solution for those needs too! Just choose one of our many courses that teach language skills for the workplace or a certificate course. Whatever kind of course you decide to take, our experienced instructors are always happy to respond to your questions and requests and factor them into the lessons on an individual basis. Adult education doesn't get much more flexible than that!
