What must I be able to do, in order to be able to participate in a German course at the DeutschAkademie?
If you come from a country where different characters are used for writing, you must be able to read and write our script. Otherwise you must first attend an alphabet course.
Can I even attend a German course, if I do not yet speak a word of German?
Certainly you can do that. We have many beginners from all over the world in our German language school.
How much German must I know, in order not to have to go into the course for absolute beginners?
There is a test for that too. It is important that you be able to form simple complete sentences in the present tense. Of course this still involves a relatively small vocabulary. But we can only come to a definite decision on that with a test.
What about if I’ve already learned some German?
In this case, we will take a written and possibly also an oral placement test in order to recommend the course level that best suits you.
Can I change course level, if I feel over- or under-challenged?
Do not worry, because our placement tests are very accurate. However, if you are not 100% satisfied with your course, we will find a good solution for you. Feel free to contact us by email or phone if you have feedback about your course level.
Can I still learn something, if I can already speak German very well?
Of course. We have the right German course for every level of knowledge.
