German Intensive Language Courses

German language acquisition, practice and proficiency are acquired on six levels according to the
Common European Framework of Reference for Languages
The Common European Framework divides learners into three broad divisions which can be divided
into five levels:

A - Basic User

B - Independent User

C - Proficient User

The CEFR describes what a learner is supposed to be able to do in reading, listening, speaking and writing at each level.

Our language courses are currently held only online via zoom.
