Alpha’s philosophy:

We teach people, not only the language!

Since 1997 Alpha Sprachinstitut Austria has offered language courses with the main focus on German as a foreign language and English. It has had thousands of graduates and is well-known far beyond the borders of Austria. It stands for quality and achievement. The secret to our success are many years of experience and the willingness to innovate..

Our goals

Our goal is to teach languages in a lively and exciting way and meet the requirements of the students. Learning a language should be fun. All our trainers are highly qualified and have a profound knowledge of the subject and methodology. Lively classroom atmospheres support active participation in the lessons and boost the desire to learn.

Our values

The values we convey within the team as well as with our customers are humanity, appreciation, esteem and treating each other respectfully. We take it for granted that we do not treat staff or participants differently because of sex, race, family background, a handicap, religion, age or sexual orientation.

Our offer

We offer high quality lessons with highly motivated trainers. Small, internationally composed groups create a pleasant learning atmosphere. Alpha is authorized to conduct the exams for the ÖSD diploma, so we prepare students for these exams and they can also take the exams in our institute. For companies and institutions we offer trainings tailored according to their needs. Individual trainings as well as language trainings for specific purposes and technical terms complete our offer.

After finishing the course, the participants are convinced that the course they attended has enriched their lives and helped them grow as a person. They recommend us as they have experienced excellent treatment according to their own needs and requirements.
