Konversationskurse

Im Zeitraum September – Dezember 2020 finden die Kurse wieder im DAZ statt.

Auf Grund der aktuellem Situation achten wir natürlich sehr auf Hygiene am Institut.
Im DAZ herrscht u.a. eine Maskenpflicht für alle Besucher*innen. Die Masken dürfen am Platz im Kursraum allerdings abgenommen werden.
Unsere Gruppengröße sind aktuell je nach Raum auf max. 5 oder 7 Personen beschränkt, damit wir gewährleisten können, dass mindestens 1,5 m Abstand zwischen den Sitzplätzen besteht. Die maximale Gruppengröße können Sie den Kursbeschreibungen entnehmen.
