Frequently asked questions

How Does it Work?

These levels are classified as A1 for beginners, A2 for elementary, B1 for intermediate, B2 for upper intermediate, C1 as advanced, and C2 as mastery.
CORE Languages, like many other language schools, splits these levels in half to accommodate students' time and budget planning (e.g. level A1 is split into A1.1 and A1.2). This framework is one of the best to learn German for beginners.
To start with level B1.2, you are expected to have knowledge of all levels through German B1.1.
