German B1 intensive course

Our B1 German course builds on the A2 intensive course. The acquisition of the basic grammar is largely completed at the beginning of the B1 German course. In the further course of the course, more complex grammatical structures are dealt with. The ability to take part in everyday conversations without preparation is gradually developed in the B1 course. The spectrum of topics of discussion will be expanded to include political, economic, historical and current social issues. The course of the lessons and the types of tasks in our B1 intensive course aim to enable students to use the language independently within a short period of time.

Your daily B1 lessons with us look like this:

  • Training of oral and written communication skills
  • intensive vocabulary work
  • Training of listening and reading comprehension based on texts of medium difficulty
  • Learning and practicing more complex grammar structures
  • Presentation and writing training
  • Pronunciation training

After successfully completing our B1 German course, you will be able to express yourself in German independently and have fluent discussions on the main topics. You will learn from clearly formulated conversations on topics such as training, work, leisure, media, etc. to obtain detailed information and to write your own coherent argumentative texts.

Target group:

German learners who have mastered basic German grammar as far as possible, understand texts on everyday topics, can communicate in the most common everyday situations and who want to quickly develop their knowledge of German
