Centre for Language Studies (ZfS)

The Centre for Language Studies (ZfS) of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities is the central contact point for all students and employees of the University of Paderborn who are interested in language learning. We offer semester courses for students of all faculties in up to 20 languages as well as intensive courses during the semester break. We have a self-access centre (Mediathek) with 10 computer workstations, a "speaking room" with 8 computer workstations and a variety of learning materials as well as numerous other offers for learning languages (e.g. supported language tandem, language learning advising, strategy workshops, pronunciation training and many more). We are also accredited as a testing centre for UNIcert©, TOEFL, DELE and SWEDEX.
