Course structure

The language course is made up of the basic language course of consisting of 300 hours followed by a consolidation course with another 300 hours. Learners with no prior knowledge of German generally take the whole course starting with the first module and can use the total 600 hours to reach B1 level. Individual course modules can of course always be repeated at a learner’s own expense. Should you fail the B1 examination after the 600 hours there is possibility to apply for a further 300 of lessons.

The orientation course is made up of 100 hours and should be taken by all participants. Learnes with good previous knowledge can take only this module with having done the language course.

  • courses for beginners have between 400 and 600 hours (45 minutes)
