The Language Center (LC) offers all staff and students of Furtwangen University the opportunity to gain and improve foreign language and intercultural awareness skills.
Over 40 qualified instructors at the LC, mainly native speakers, teach HFU students and staff in well over 100 courses every semester. Courses are held in small groups of max. 23 participants. Our goal is to offer up-to-date and innovative foreign language instruction by regularly extending our range of courses and introducing online modules.
Since 2014 we have been using NEO, one of the most modern learning management systems in the area of languages and course management which won the "Tech Edvocate Award" in the USA in 2017 and 2018. This offers our students considerable advantages:
- clear grading system
- standardized course development
- independent use of resources
- efficient learning
- centralized communication between teachers students and administration
Our Learning Management System NEO won the 2018 Tech Edvocate Award for best learning management system.
The Language Center is now a Test Centre for internationally recognized language tests for German, English and Spanish.
