Levels of German @ GLS Campus Berlin
We teach German on all levels all year round - ranging from beginners to advanced (levels as defined by the Common European Reference Framework: A = elementary, B = intermediate, C = advanced). No matter what level you are on right now, you can start your German course in our school in Berlin 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.
