Our levels correspond to the Council of Europe's framework of reference. Our basic levels consist of three course modules (beginner levels 1 to 3 or A1, A2 and B1).
The beginner levels lead to intermediate levels 1 and 2 (B2 / C1) and are followed by the advanced level (OS only on request). Each course has a total of 160 teaching hours (= 8 weeks intensive course).
Students who have completed level B 1 may take part in an examination at Tandem Köln which corresponds to Zertifikat Deutsch (TELC).
After completing intermediate level 2, you may take an examination corresponding to the ZMP-exam of the Goethe-Institute.
