What can I do with B1 level German?
First an foremost, learning German on level B1 will help you enjoy life in Germany. Berlin is the capital of Germany and is located in the centre of Europe. This multicultural city can surprise you and you will learn a lot from it. If you are living somewhere abroad, speaking and understanding the local language will undoubtedly come in handy. For example, taking the U-Bahn or any other public transport is part of Berlin life. Indeed, Berlin is a huge city, and so going everywhere on foot is not possible. That’s why it is essential to take part in a B1 German Course, which will prepare you for almost all situations you are likely to encounter in public. This will not only mean being able to get your head around simple things, but also deal with more complex exchanges such as discussing your rent or booking a rail ticket.
What do I need for a B1 German Course?
If you already have existing knowledge of German and haven’t had lessons at DAS Akademie before, we invite you to take part in a free placement test, which consists of two parts – a short written part and an informal chat with one of our teachers. From there, we will be able to determine which course is best for you.
There are no rules which say you have to have a textbook. Teachers may, however, discuss the course content with students and recommend purchasing a course book. If a textbook is agreed on, the price of this is not included in the fees listed here.
How much does it cost?
The intensive course (10:00-13:15 daily, 5 days per week, for 4 weeks) would cost 445€. This means you will have completed the first part of level B1, which is B1.1. If you decide to book the complete course, you’d pay 830€ all together for B1.1 and B1.2.
If you aren’t able to attend courses during the day, an evening course would cost 400€ for 10 weeks of B1 German learning. However, if you want to complete the the levels B1.1 and B1.2 for 20 weeks, the price would be 765€.
