The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages defines criteria for different levels of linguistic proficiency from A1 (absolute beginners) to C2 (native speakers). Levels A1, A2, and B1 represent the basic level; B2 and C1, the intermediate level; and C2, the advanced level.
In order to register for the appropriate course at the Sprachsalon, you need to know your current proficiency in the language you wish to study. We have prepared a self-assessment exercise to help you gauge your proficiency in German and select the right course for you.
When you have completed each test, please send the results to Sprachsalon (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please, no cheating! An excellent test result is counter-productive, if it lands you on a course incompatible with your current abilities.
