All of our courses take place at our location Hutfilterstr. 24-26 (6.Stock), 28195 Bremen.
As a rule, an intensive course runs 15 hours per week (teaching units (UE), divided over three weekdays, 5 UE per course day).
The whole course covers levels A1, A2 and B1, divided into 4 modules.
Module 1: A1

The modules do not always correspond exactly to the different levels, there are variations depending on the course.
To find out which entry level is right for you, there is a compulsory placement test. If the result is a higher entry level, you will enter a running course from the appropriate module. All courses start with module 1 (A1).
The target level to be reached is B1. This is the only level that is officially tested at the end of the course. There are no exams for levels A1 and A2.
The examination is a German test for immigrants, which we conduct as a licensee on behalf of TELC Language Tests. A telc certificate is based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. A telc certificate is considered a meaningful proof of qualification.
The test "Leben in Deutschland" takes place subsequent to the module "Orientation Course". It consists of a test questionnaire with a total of 33 questions on politics and society in Germany.
There are a total of three course books and three workbooks for the whole course from A1 to B1. The cost of all books is approximately 60,00€ to 80,00€. These costs must be covered by the student.
