About us

The Eduard-von-Hallberger-Institute (EHI) was founded in 2000. It is an educational institution which offers language classes, various preparatory and training courses and school exchange programs.

At the langauge center and in the various preparatory courses, we prepare foreign applicants linguistically and professionally for a subsequent university degree, for a later vocational training or an employment in Germany.

In contrast to ordinary language institutions we attach importance to a targeted eduaction in our courses. This means that during the preparation time at EHI, in addition to the general language skills (DaF levels A1 to C1), the participants also acquire technical terminology and technical skills which are essential for later studies or professional practice in Germany. Depending on the focus this includes subjects such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, the basics of computer science, business, economics and English, but also artistic subjects in order to prepare for studying at a music or art college.

The Eduard-von-Hallberger-Institute is a licensed TestDaF and telc test center and can therefore carry out internationally recognized DaF language tests from A1 to C1, C1 for University, TestDaF or TestAS. All teachers at our institution are highly qualified academics with many years of teaching experience in language and subject teaching. They are friendly, helpful, patient, responsible, motivated and professional. 

Every year a large number of foreign young people come to us to Freudenstadt within our international summer and winter campus programs in order to get to know Germany, the language and new friends.

In addition, we offer custom-made training courses for interested foreigners, e.g. about the German education system, the dual vocational training, about methodical-didactic measures or about quality assurance and quality management in training.

Our institute is an exchange platform for the knowledge and technology transfer beteen Germany and China appointed by the Chinese Ministry of Scinece and Technology (MoST) and maintains diverse contacts and cooperations with various 
institutions both at home and abroad, e.g. with the Steinbeis University Berlin, the IHK Nordschwarzwald, the AHK Paris or the Federal Employment Agency. We are therefore always able to respond to special requests and interests. 

One thing is cetrain: we always do everything to ensure that the desired goal is reached as quickly as possible and that everyone involved is satisfied.
