Language Level A2.1

Objectives: Participants can report about their everyday life, ask for information and talk to others about tasks or plans. Participants can understand simple texts (listening and reading texts). In order to achieve these goals, the basic vocabulary and grammatical knowledge of the German language already learned at level A1 is expanded.

Language Level A2.2

Participants can understand simple texts (listening and reading texts) and express their opinion.

Language Level B1

Objectives: Participants can talk and discuss everyday topics and understand simple texts on current affairs (listening and reading texts), summarise them and express their opinions. Participants can write structured texts. In order to achieve these goals, the basic vocabulary is expanded and more complex grammatical structures are introduced.

Language Level B2

Objectives: Participants can speak and discuss more complex topics in a coherent way and understand more complex listening and reading texts (e.g. from the media). The participants can write structured, argumentatively convincing texts and give lectures. In order to achieve these goals, vocabulary on important topics beyond the basic vocabulary is developed and complex grammatical structures, especially those found in scientific language, are introduced.
