About Course

Looking to level up your elementary German?Take the next step in your journey to fluency with Part 2 of our Elementary Course. Together, we’ll have you using the vocabulary and grammar needed for daily life in German.Among many other things, this includes varying your greetings, talking about hobbies, and making plans for the future. You’ll learn to hold a full conversation about who you are, where you come from, and what’s going on in your life.To start with this level, you are expected to already have some basic-to-elementary knowledge of German. This course is ideal for people who have recently completed an A2.1 course or received this recommended level on our placement test.

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 A2, you are expected to have working knowledge of levels A1.1 through A2.1

What Does it Mean for You?

After completing level A2.2, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment).​​
  • Communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters.​​
  • Describe in simple terms aspects of your background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.
