Basic levels A1 – B1
In the three basic levels you will learn all skills such as listening and reading comprehension, pronunciation, grammar, writing and basic vocabulary. The emphasis is on speaking. You should be able to make yourself understood quickly in everyday life and have the courage to speak German “outdoors”, i.e. to break down your language barriers quickly.

Advanced levels B2 – C1
Basic vocabulary and grammar as well as communicative skills are systematically expanded in the advanced levels, with the focus on free language use and coping with specific language situations during your studies, job or exams.

We offer our German courses “Hybrid” throughout the year, also as Summer  and Evening part time course.

You can choose your individual course length between 1-40 weeks and join a course basically every Monday or start a regular course module.

All our online German intensive courses take place from Monday-Friday, from 09:30 am – 14:00 pm CET. (Exception: If there are fewer than five registered participants, the course will only take place over 4 lessons per day)

Our Parttime evening courses start twice a week at 6 pm CET.

For private lessons individual course times are agreed upon.

With our  German via LIVER video course” you would learn in small international groups, with highly professional native teachers and our proven communicative methods. For example, in our Intensive course you only need 8 weeks for a complete language level, e.g. A1 or B2.
