Levels of German
We teach German on 7 levels ranging from A0 to C2 - as defined by the Common European Reference Framework (CERF). German courses in Berlin run on all 7 levels all year round: so no matter what level you are on right now, you can start any Monday you like. A placement test - consisting of a written and an oral part on your first Monday - will make sure that you will be learning with others of a similar level.
