Elements of TREFF PUNKT’S
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”.

Many of the centuries old buildings have pubs where home-brewed beer and Franconian as well as Bavarian dishes are served.
