I have attended several courses at WoDaS and I am completely satisfied with the quality of the courses. the teachers are very professional and polite, and they always achieve to make the course interesting. The teachers will get everyone engaged and the course is indeed practice oriented. The last course I attended at WoDaS was B2 and I will for sure attend C1 there as well!! I recommend it to everyone that wants to learn German!!

Thank to these courses I got from a meagre A2 German level to a respectable C1 in around two years. Plus, I got confident enough in my skills to test them on the field. This says a lot for the quality of these courses. I got assigned a brilliant teacher who knows how to give her students a comprehensive experience in terms of grammar, reading skills, oral and written production. Highly recommended!

I attended one-to-one coaching sessions in WODAS for my German language exam preparation. This course prepared me well for the examination. The teachers here are knowledgeable, helpful, dedicated, approachable and hardworking. Apart from one-to-one sessions, there are also group courses for German languages. Those who reside outside Klagenfurt/Austria can organise a course though online video too. Overall, I would recommend this centre to anyone who wants to learn the German language, who resides outside Klagenfurt/Austria, who wants to prepare for German language examination or who wants to take the ÖSD examination.

Ich habe nach der Arbeit bei Wodas gelernt, am Abend. Ich hatte noch nie so viel Spaß beim Lernen. Gute Lehrerin , immer freundlich und sehr guter Humor. Wir haben viel gelernt aber auch immer Spaß gehabt! Ich komme wieder. Irgendwann mache ich auch C1 Prüfung.

Ich habe bei WoDas von Wien aus einen Online Englischkurs absolviert, weil ich schon länger auf der Suche nach einem Kurs war, der sich meinen Bedürfnissen anpasst und trotzdem noch leistbar ist. Da ich beruflich immer öfters die Englische Sprache verwenden muss, war es höchste Zeit für eine Auffrischung. Ich hab zwar dieses App ausprobiert mit dem man lernen kann, war aber sehr inkonsequent und habe nach ein paar Tagen ganz damit aufgehört.Das tolle an diesem Online Kurs von WoDas ist, dass ich von zu Hause aus über das Internet lernen kann und trotzdem direkten Kontakt mit den Lehrerinnen hatte. Ich hole mir quasi das "Klassenzimmer" ins Wohnzimmer. Und zwar dann, wenn ich Zeit habe. Das macht richtig Spaß und es gibt keine Ausreden mehr, denn die Lehrerin ist real und hört mir zu, korrigiert mich wenn notwendig und sie gibt mir auch Aufgaben die sie beim nächsten Mal abfragt. Dadurch bin ich bei der kurzen Lerneinheit konzentrierter und es bleibt sehr viel hängen.
