German CEFR A2 > A2/B1 - online

The German language courses of the University of Groningen Language Centre focus on speaking and understanding German in everyday situations that you might come across in Germany. A German language course can help you to update your half-forgotten skills or to expand your existing skills.

German level A2 > A2/B1 is for participants with basic knowledge of German, who have had around 2 years of German at secondary school. You still have a basic knowledge of German and can participate in a simple conversation about familiar topics of your interest. You can also read and write short, simple notes, messages and letters and are able to find relevant information in short texts. Determine your starting level of a language training online and in your own time with the placement test!

Language of Instruction
The target language is the language of instruction as much as possible. When necessary, the course is taught in Dutch and/or English.

Get a taste during the free Webinar Week!
On 2 February, you can attend an German webinar during which you can find out about the courses and the virtual classroom, ask questions and get a taste of what to expect.

Office hour
If you want to register and you have not previously taken a German course at the Language Centre, we advise you to visit the office hour to discuss with a teacher which course would suit you best, but this is not mandatory. Please note that you can already register for the course you are interested in. Office hours only take place in the period before the start of the course. If office hours are scheduled, you can make your appointment here.

You will also be using online course material in Nestor, the blackboard learning environment of the University of Groningen.

The following course material will be used. You must order this yourself from a bookshop or online.

Using a Rosetta Stone account besides a language course

Please note that a Rosetta Stone account is not compulsory for our language courses and will not be used by the teacher.

Attendance certificate
At the end of a course, every participant will receive an attendance certificate on condition that they have attended 75% of the lessons.
