    Levels

    BWS Germanlingua uses the levels of the Standard European Framework of Reference for Languages for our approved German language courses in Berlin. We assign students to classes based on the levels of the “Common European Framework of Reference for Languages” (CEFR) by administering a written placement test via the internet before arrival and a short oral test on the day of arrival.

    The groups are not closed. This means it is possible to change classes (and therefore levels) during the stay (if a place is available in the higher or lower class). The teacher or the student may request a change of level. In either case, the procedure to follow is to speak to the Director.

    Please note: In case a standard or intensive group course has less than 3 participants, we reserve the right to reduce class length for the standard course from 20 to 15 lessons per week and the intensive course from 25 to 18 lessons per week.
