Assessment of your German language levelOnce you have found your favorite place and accommodation for a German course, we will find out together which level of German you should study. You can take our assessment test for free online or on site. Once you have chosen between an intensiv, evening, morning-or weekend course, we will test your language level.
Levels A1 and A2 are for beginners, B1 and B2 build on this and are designed to enable you to use the language independently, C1 and C2 are the final levels, which will give you the autonomous language competence. These levels correspond to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. After completing each level, you can take an examination. All Goethe-Institut examinations are internationally recognized as proof of your German language skill.
As mentioned above, the best way to learn any language is to communicate with the locals in everyday life. For this purpose, we offer an extensive cultural and leisure program. You can try out and improve your German language skills on city tours, at cooking events, in art exhibitions, in open-air cinema, in museums or during festival visits, by doing sports or simply by going out to a restaurant together with other classmates. Learning German means you can have a lot of fun at the same time.
German courses for adults and young people
I used to find learning German really difficult and I tried lots of different things. But on the language course at the Goethe-Institut, I suddenly started making rapid progress.
