The Name ” Perfekt Deutsch Institut ” itself is enough to tell anything about this Institute. This was the best Intensivkurs I have ever had in my life. The structure of the course was so innovative and so well planned that It made so much easier to understand the rules of the German language. Just because of this Institute and the efforts of the teachers I have secured 85% marks in DSH and successfully completed the LEVEL DSH 3. I would like to thank the Faculty of this Institute.
I also highly recommend this Institute for those, who are willing to clear the DSH Prüfung in a very short period of time.

我在perfekt.deutsch从B1上到DSH准备班,并在Fh Aachen顺利通过了dsh2。在perfekt.deutsch上课这段时间老师们给了我很大的帮助。在这里上课会有大量针对所要参加的dsh的练习和往届的真题。大量的练习让我对我所要参加的dsh考试不再陌生,并在不断的联系中吸取经验,自己总结出许多应试技巧和考试方法。而这些对我最后通过dsh有很大的帮助。除了学习,在这里我还遇到很多外国的同学,大家在一起交流不仅锻炼了口语还可以开阔自己的眼界。
