El­e­ments of TR­EFF PUNKT’S

Qual­ity As­sur­ance:

The school man­age­ment team is led by Alexan­dra von Rohr. She is al­ways on hand and will gladly at­tend to any ques­tions or re­quests you may have. A Di­rec­tor of Stu­dent Af­fairs will not only an­swer any teach­ing-re­lated ques­tions but will also give you ideas on what to do and where to go in your free time. A weeky stu­dent opin­ion ques­tion­naire as­sess­ing the teach­ing, the teach­ers, the ac­com­mo­da­tion and the ac­tiv­ity pro­gramme, al­lows us to re­act im­me­di­ately to any views or rec­om­men­da­tions you may ex­press. Ev­ery two weeks stu­dents sit a 90 minute test which en­ables both the teach­ing team and the stu­dents them­selves to re­view their learn­ing progress. Our meth­ods have also been ap­proved by the univer­sity in Ha­gen and con­se­quently we have been a li­censed TestDaF cen­tre since July 2005. TestDaF is an exam. which en­ables suc­cess­ful can­di­dates to em­bark upon a course of study at any Ger­man univer­sity. We now not only of­fer prepa­ra­tion cour­ses for TestDaF but also con­duct the exam. our­selves on site. In both the first week of the course and at the end of ev­ery par­tic­i­pant’s stay we ask for a com­pre­hen­sive as­sess­ment of: • the course • the teach­ers • pas­toral care and ad­vice on ef­fec­tive learn­ing

meth­ods • the ac­tiv­ity pro­gramme • or­gan­i­sa­tion/ser­vice The TR­EFF PUNKT cer­tifi­cate At the end of a TR­EFF PUNKT course, ev­ery par­tic­i­pant will re­ceive a cer­tifi­cate de­tail­ing the num­ber of teach­ing hours re­ceived and the level achieved ac­cord­ing to the Euro­pean Frame­work. In this way ev­ery stu­dent has tan­gi­ble ev­i­dence of their achieve­ments, which can be pre­sented to po­ten­tial em­ploy­ers and uni­ver­si­ties world­wide. Mem­ber­ship of the DaF (Deutsch als Fremd­sprache) as­so­ci­a­tion TR­EFF PUNKT is a mem­ber of “fadaf”. Through this as­so­ci­a­tion we can al­ways be as­sured of be­ing up to date with the lat­est teach­ing meth­ods and ma­te­ri­als for Ger­man as a for­eign lan­guage. In ad­di­tion we have close con­tact with the Ger­man lan­guage teach­ers at Bam­berg Univer­sity, as many also teach at TR­EFF PUNKT. The once im­pe­rial city of Bam­berg is lo­cated in north­ern Bavaria and is con­sid­ered one of the most ro­man­tic of Ger­man cities. When Hein­rich II was crowned king of Ger­many in 1002 he chose Bam­berg as his fa­vorite res­i­dence and laid the foun­da­tions for the de­vel­op­ment of the city, which started in the Ro­manesque pe­riod and reached its peak in the Baroque era. The “Dream City of the Ger­mans” lies on the river Reg­nitz and the Main-Danube trib­u­tary. Monas­ter­ies and churches stand in soli­tary splen­dor on Bam­berg’s seven hills. The town was scarcely dam­aged dur­ing W.W.II and still re­tains many splen­did me­di­ae­val ar­chi­tec­tural fea­tures. In 1993 Bam­berg was awarded “World Her­itage” sta­tus by UNESCO. The univer­sity town of­fers a broad range of cul­tural pos­si­bil­i­ties. On WKH RnH KDnG, yRu finG PusHuPs, WKHDWHUs DnG WKH wRUOG-UHnRwnHG clas­si­cal orches­tra, the “Bam­berger Sym­phoniker”. On the other hand, there are street fes­ti­vals, bars and jazz clubs cater­ing for the needs of “night hawks”. Those who pre­fer to in­dulge in qui­eter pur­suits or wish to be ac­tive and play sports will also feel at home in Bam­berg. It’s easy to get around in Bam­berg, and walk­ing or bi­cy­cling are per­fect ways in this old town. Many of the cen­turies old build­ings have pubs where home-brewed beer and Fran­co­nian as well as Bavar­ian dishes are served. Try the lo­cal spe­cial­ties: Fran­co­nian wine, smoked beer, a va­ri­ety of sausages and breads. Bam­berg is con­sid­ered to be a beer drinker’s Eden, pro­duc­ing more than thirty va­ri­eties, one RI WKHP fiUsW EUHwHG Ln 1536. EYHn Mu­nich can’t match more. Last but not least Bam­berg is also listed in the book 1,000 places to see be­fore you die!
