Our course programme is based on the „Common European Framework of Reference for Languages“ (CEFR).

CEFR has created a standard that is valid throughout Europe. By dividing the framework into six levels it is not only possible to determine the current level of knowledge of a student, but also to define which level the students want to reach and to prove if those levels have been reached properly. Our language school offers you German courses on all levels.
