Centre for Foreign Language Acquisition
The languages you can learn at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) are as diverse as the flair on the campus is international. These services are concentrated at the Centre for Foreign Language Acquisition (Zentrum für Fremdsprachenausbildung, ZFA).
The centre offers a wide variety of courses, including introductory ones and the languages taught range from Arabic to Turkish. The courses do not form part of modularised degree programmes and all members of the university may attend.
The ZFA offers general and specialised language courses which concentrate in particular on inter-cultural communication in academic surroundings. Tandem courses and tandem mediation with individual language-learning counselling also enable the language resources of the Ruhr-Universität to be used for learning with and from each other on a partnership basis.
