The THI Language Centre is an important central institution within a technical university with global perspectives and ambitions.
Of course, the primary task of the Language Centre at the Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt is foreign-language instruction for learners of all levels. Students here at the THI have access to a wide variety of courses, far beyond the basic language requirements including elective language courses and even language proficiency certificates.
“To know another’s language and not his culture is a very good way to make a fluent fool of one’s self.” (Winston Brembeck)
This quote explains why we in the THI Language Centre employ almost exclusively native speakers as language instructors, emphasizing not only fluency in foreign language but also intercultural competence. We are especially proud of the wide variety of languages we offer (currently English, French, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, and German), while the Language Centre is constantly expanding, offering new language courses and certificate programmes. You can find out more about the services we offer under the categories “Language Courses” and “Intercultural Communication” in the navigation column to the left.
