What is my Course Level?

In our classes we work with material, which is based on the CEFR Levels A1, A2,and B1. 

We focus mainly on skills that are important to conversation - speaking and listening with some competencies in reading comprehension.

Therefore the best way to establish the best class for you is a short chat, rather than a written test

In a free 10-15min phone consultation, we will talk about your previous experiences of learning and/or using German language and your motivations and objectives for taking a German language course. If you would like to try out your German, we can have part of our conversation in German. This is optional though, so don't be shy and get in touch :-)

Register your interest for a FREE phone consultation. Please give your phone number and a couple of times when it is suitable for me to call you.
