German Course Levels

No matter what level of language you can already speak or whether you’ve had lessons before, one of our German Course Levels will definitely suit you! We design all our courses around the CEFR Framework, so that your certificate and level of language will be recognised across the whole of Europe.

Overview of German Course Levels

As you can see in the table below, we offer all German course levels, so there will always be a good time for you to join. You can join for as many levels as you like, whether that be just for one sub-level, or to complete an entire German-learning journey. Here, you only see the price per German course level. If you would like to book a course for more than 1 level,  please visit our page dedicated to course prices. The more you book, the less you pay per week, and therefore per level.

German Course Levels

Duration of each level

Intensive German courses are also our so-called visa courses, designed for people who would like visit Germany for a year or less to learn the German language. If you opt for one of these, you will undertake 20 lessons per week in a group of 6 to 10 participants, or 15 lessons per week in a mini group of 4 to 5. Here, the strategy is simple: the lower the number of students and the higher the number of teaching hours, the more time you have to personally discuss and work towards your goals with your language instructor. However, your registration will always be for a course with 20 lessons per week as required by German Embassies worldwide.

To complete all the course levels starting in an A1 German course, you will need 48 weeks of intensive classes. This is possible, however we only accept registrations until the end of level C1 at the beginning, as step above is described as native-like proficiency, and would require you to spend time in Germany and pick up the culture, as well as taking lessons. When you have had this vital experience, we would love to welcome you back to deepen your knowledge further in a C2 German course.

If you have a busy day schedule but still want to learn a language, have a look at our Evening German Courses for more information. Please do bear in mind, however, that while it takes four weeks to complete a sub-level with intensive classes, it takes ten weeks with evening classes. Our course prices page includes more pricing options.
