Have a busy job but want to improve your German? This level course is designed to help you improve your proficiency in German on an ongoing basis through regular classes, pitched at an average pace.
The focus is on vocabulary, grammar and everyday phrases, tailored to your particular level. You will gradually expand your knowledge and consolidate what you have learned through a series of exercises.
Additional study: 3 to 4 hours per week
With our classroom-based courses, you and your fellow students enjoy in-person teaching at an Academia school in your region. The timetable remains the same throughout. Your teacher is highly qualified and will ensure that lessons are varied and fun.
No prior knowledge of the language is required for A1 courses. For higher-level courses, we expect you to be comfortable with the previous level. Take our placement test to make sure that you are at the right level.
B2 – Intermediate
By the end of this level B2 course, you will be able to understand the main content of complex texts on concrete and abstract themes. You will also be able to follow higher-level discussions in your own particular field of interest. You will be able to communicate spontaneously and fluently enough to hold a normal conversation with a native speaker without much effort on either part. You will be able to express yourself clearly and in detail on a broad range of subjects, explain your stance on a topical issue and describe the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
On completing this course, you have a choice of options if you wish to continue to improve or consolidate your language skills.
