German for priests

IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD. 

We have many years of experience in conducting language training for Catholic priests.


Specialist course modules for priests can either be integrated into our general language lessons or organized separately. It is recommended that participants are at level B2 or higher.

 

Our expert for you: Thomas Eufinger

My name is Thomas Eufinger and I’m responsible for the German for Priests specialist language program at ISEU. Besides having a degree in philology, I have undertaken training in singing and pronunciation. I’m fascinated by the connection between language and speech.

Working closely with the Diocese of Limburg, my team and I have developed highly specialized language training programs for priests, which combine general language lessons with specialist liturgical vocabulary and pronunciation training.

  • Specialist pronunciation training, including liturgical singing
  • Attendance of church services followed by an evaluation of the language used

 

Example project for the Diocese of Limburg

FATHER NORBERT POSSMANN SAC (DIOCESE OF LIMBURG) ON THE PARTNERSHIP WITH ISEU:

“The Diocese of Limburg has been working with ISEU to provide language courses and pronunciation training for our foreign priests since 2013.

From the outset, we noticed that the foreign priests we trained were much better understood and became considerably more confident when talking to their congregations. The pronunciation training especially developed by ISEU helps foreign priests enormously because the language analysis provides them with personal feedback on areas where they need to improve their pronunciation. They can then receive training on these areas in one-to-one lessons and can also practice independently online.

This is a huge step forward for us! We have also developed a specialist e-learning module to provide priests with specialist training to help them prepare for delivering church services.”
