Languages for Specific Purposes (LSP)

"Learning a foreign language is your gateway to the world. Learning the technical and scientific aspects of a language is the golden ticket into professional life.”

Target Group

At the ZFA you can take part in Language for Specific Purposes courses where you will focus on the skills and topics relevant to your discipline.

Language Levels

Our courses are all based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). You must fulfil the minimum language requirements for participation and you will be in a class with students of varying levels.

Language for Specific Purposes courses (LSP)

Our LSP courses for students of all disciplines are tailored to your specific subject needs and are taught using relevant and authentic materials. You will be in a class with students on similar degree programmes. Our LSP courses for students of one particular degree programme are designed in consultation with a specific institution or faculty. These courses provide you with the opportunity to practise your language skills using authentic materials relevant to your field of study. You will be in a class with students who study on the same degree programme as you.

Course choice

How to choose the right course? First of all, consider which language will play a major role in your further academic and professional career. Read the title of the course carefully and, above all, the course description.

We do not offer courses in your specialty? Specific courses can be designed for each faculty. Please contact us, your faculty or your deanery.
