Konversationskurse

Im Zeitraum September bis Dezember 2021 finden unsere Kurse wieder vor Ort im DAZ statt.
Auf Grund der aktuellen Situation achten wir natürlich sehr auf Hygiene am Institut. Im DAZ herrscht u.a. eine Maskenpflicht für alle Besucher*innen. Diese Regeln passen wir der Pandemie-Lage an. Über den aktuellen Stand des Hygienekonzeptes werden Sie vor Beginn des Kurses per E-Mail informiert.

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.
