Since November 2022, we have been offering free German classes to Ukrainian refugees. We currently have 7 groups of different difficulty levels, ranging from A1 to B1. Our courses are offered both on-site (in Zurich at the Zürich Stadt Soziale Dienste locations and in Basel at Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz FHNW place) and online. Almost all of our teachers are native German speakers. 

Keep an eye on our announcements for new groups, or fill out the form, and we will contact you if a group with the requested level is formed.

Найбільше як можна допомогти людині - це дати знання. Дякую дуже всій команді і особливо Алексу за вашу роботу. Дякую Алексу за професіоналізм, уроки завжди цікаві і дуже дуже інформативні. Дякую за те скільки свого власного часу він приділяв всій нашій групі! Це безцінно.

Замечательные курсы немецкого. С нашим преподавателем Викторией заговорит даже такой, как я.

Очень попятная подача материала, постоянная практика говорения, что оочень важно.

Благодарна неимоверно Bonum за организацию и преподавателю Викторию за обучающий процесс!

Удачи Вам во всем!
