The german studios Method

In our German courses for beginners, you will benefit from the german studios method. Even when you have mastered many grammatical structures and have an extensive vocabulary, speaking the language fluently is not always easy. We have received feedback from many participants that they used to be afraid to apply German in practice. They were so concerned about making a mistake that they decided not to speak at all. Since the learned words were not regularly applied, they were quickly forgotten. Our german studios method is designed to ensure that as a beginner, you don't just learn from a book but effectively and practically practice your newly acquired knowledge. The german studios course concept is based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). With interactive exercises and communication-oriented tasks, you learn from the very beginning to apply your learned knowledge. This way, you overcome the fear of the new language and successfully improve your language skills. Our teachers also place a high value on creating a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere in class, so that everyone feels secure and motivated while learning.

In addition to the course books, which serve as a guiding thread for the fundamental topics of the course, we use a lot of additional material. All german studios teachers, as experts in teaching beginners, lay the best possible foundation for your further language development.

Learn in Small Groups and in an Open and Cozy Atmosphere

We place great importance on making sure you don't feel like you're in a sterile learning institute but rather relaxed and comfortable, like in a cozy living room. Our class sizes range from 4 to a maximum of 14 participants, and we always ensure that this limit is not exceeded. Especially in the beginning, it is very important that you receive adequate attention and support from your teacher.

Frequently Asked Questions About the German Course for Beginners

How long will it take me to start speaking German? How long does it take to become proficient in the German language? How quickly you progress in German depends on many factors, such as whether you have learned one or more foreign languages in the past, and how much time you invest in learning. Your motivation, of course, also plays a significant role. You establish the foundation for your language skills during the A-levels (A1 and A2). After completing the A-levels of the Beginner German course, you will already be able to handle yourself well in familiar everyday situations. After completing the B-levels, you will be able to converse spontaneously and effortlessly with native speakers, as well as understand extensive and challenging texts without major problems. Once you have completed level C1, you will speak almost like a native speaker and can even apply to German universities.

What does A1.1+ mean? The "+" sign after the level designation indicates that this is the second part of the level (i.e., A1.1+ is the second part of the A1.1 level). This means that you can complete the entire A1.1 level in two months. If you have no prior knowledge of the German language, A1.1+ may be too advanced for you. Start with the A1.1 level instead. If you want to learn more intensively and complete A1.1 in just one month, take a look at our Intensive German Courses for Beginners.
