Preparation for the Gymnasium entrance exam

Gymnasium - a ticket for your future

Now as always, an excellent education is the key to your future career. In addition to foreign languages, Gymnasium students learn the abstract thinking that is more vital than ever in high-level professions.

Without focussed preparation for Gymnasium, the transition is all but impossible. Even when the schools offer Gymi prep two lessons a week, it is usually not enough.


The teachers have to prepare and copy the practice material, which takes a lot of time and effort. At Lern-Forum, all of our course documents are constantly being updated and made to conform with current teaching materials.

We employ teachers whose sole job is to prepare course materials. These materials are then sent to a printer.

Thanks to the tightly-run courses, the students learn very efficiently and can close gaps in their knowledge while gaining confidence in their ability to solve problems.
