German CEFR A2/B1 > B1

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/B1 > B1 is for participants who have taken the Level A2 > A2/B1 German course at the Language Centre or who have reached a comparable level of proficiency. You are able to cope with most everyday situations when you are in a German-speaking country. You can understand the main points of conversations about personal matters, family, work, school and spare time, as well as the main points of radio or television programmes about current affairs that interest you. You can write simple texts about familiar or personally relevant topics and are able to understand texts that contain many frequently used or work-related words.

Determine your starting level of a language training online and in your own time with the placement test!

This course will be taught as an online interactive group course via Blackboard Collaborate; our online classroom for the coming period! One lesson lasts 90 minutes. Per lesson you should count on 2-3 hours of self-study. Read here everything you can expect from an online language course.
