The key pillars of the
DCG teaching method
→ Classroom teaching
The book "Berliner Platz" is considered a successful book, especially for basic level courses. It is used for the classroom teaching.
→ E-learning platform
The multimedia e-learning platform “Deutsch-Uni Online” was developed together with the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and is offered by the Gesellschaft für Akademische Studienvorbereitung und Testentwicklung (g.a.s.t.)
DCG combines the teaching book and the e-learning platform into a blended learning programme. Therefore, we design Timetables, Learning Materials, Vocabulary and (free) multimedia Applications so that we can support the successful integration.
