Test your German at all levels
The European Framework of Reference for Languages divides language ability into six levels (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2). Level A1 is the beginner level, B1 and B2 are roughly intermediate level, C1 and C2 represent a good to perfect language mastery, which comes very close to a native speaker, especially in C2. Of course we offer courses at all levels. After the placement test, you will know which level is best for you and accordingly we will assign you to the appropriate groups. Even a tutor needs to know your language skills so he can prepare appropriately for the course.
Practice German – find out the precise level for your language course
Placement tests, even if performed according to accepted criteria, are never one hundred percent accurate. Through our placement tests, you have found your level and now begins the lesson. After an hour or two you realize that you are bored in the classroom or you are overwhelmed by the material. This is not a problem. You can always switch to another course that better suits your current level of knowledge.
