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 A1.2, you are expected to have a working knowledge of German level A1.1.

What Does it Mean for You?

After completing level A1.2, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type.
  • ​Introduce yourself and others and ask and answer questions about personal details such as where they live, people they know and things they have.​
  • Interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.
