The German language program is offered in partnership with the Goethe-Institut Gulf Region, and is structured around the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), with six levels of proficiency. Students can pursue their studies in accordance with the expectations for passing the “Goethe-Zertifikat” exam.

The Italian language program is currently offered as Beginner level, best suited for people who have not studied the language before. The class is conducted entirely in Italian in a fun and interactive setting.
The Language Center at TII is made available to the University community and the general public to help meet the foreign language needs. Dr. Milena Savova, Director of the Language Center, explained: “In an increasingly interconnected world, the ability to communicate effectively has become crucial in our diverse society and much sought-after in the job market. Learning another language or even a third, fourth and fifth, can open so many doors no matter what your field is. The addition of Italian and German enrich our offering which will hopefully continue to expand over the coming years.”
