The number of lessons or courses needed to reach a certain level and possibly take the relevant Goethe certificate varies from student to student. Individual factors such as your own native language or if you have already learnt another foreign language play an important role. That’s why we can only give an approximate indication, based on our experience, on how long participants usually need to reach a certain language level.

In order to reach Level A1, it is normally necessary to complete 2 Intensive German Concise courses at Level A1. That means, you will generally need 4 weeks to reach Level A1. If you're planning to reach Level A1 as fast as possible, we would therefore recommend taking 2 Intensive German Concise courses in a row. If you book 2 courses (= 4 weeks) when making your booking, you will receive EUR 50 discount.
