Levels and certificates

The Standard Course K4 is organised as periods of 4 weeks, extensible to up to 40 weeks. The course programme includes all ten levels (Elementary to Advanced: Basic Level 1-4, intermediate Level 1-4, Advanced Level 1+2) following the system as applied by Goethe-Institute, and the "European Framework of Reference for Languages".


The courses prepare the HSF certificates corresponding to those issued by the Goethe-Institute (Start Deutsch-1, Start Deutsch-2, Zertifikat Deutsch, Zentrale Mittelstufen-Prüfung, Zentrale Oberstufen-Prüfung) as well as the DSH-Entry Examination of German Proficiency required by German universities and the TestDaf examinations.

Considering the 10 different levels, the course programme covers an introduction to the German language for complete beginners or those with limited skills, an intensive communicative brush-up and expansion of existing skills, a requirement-orientated language training for students and students-to-be, and an effective training in General German for young professionals.

Course combinations

The course K4 can be extended up to 40 weeks by adding up the corresponding number of 4-week periods to cover the entire course system. It can be combined with a 2-week course (K4 + K2A or K2B + K4) to result in a 6-week period or with a 3-week course (K4 + K3A / K3B) to form a 7-week period.

As a brush-up it can precede a Course for Special Purposes (DB, KEC or KTH). The course K4 can be combined with Individual Tuition EU at a volume of 2 to 5 sessions of 90 minutes per week and more.
