Language School
talk it easy!


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.

A1You will be able to understand and use easy phrases.
A2You will be able to communicate in situations of everyday life.
B1You will be able to communicate about most topics using easy language.
B2You will be able to understand more complex texts and communicate about special interest topics.
C1You will be able to understand difficult texts and to communicate spontaneously and fluent.
C2Your language skills will be (almost) as good as those of native speakers.
