C1 level German courses in Berlin

Learn German C1 in our intensive course (advanced level)

German courses at level C1 can be attended as either an intensive course, as well as a part-time course or an evening course. By choosing to do a C1 level German course at Sprachenatelier, you will gain a very advanced level of German language capabilities. Using the framework of the European Reference System for Speaking, we always guide our teaching according to the most up to date standards and in accordance with any new methodological and didactic developments in foreign language teaching. At C1 level, you will be able to express yourself spontaneously and fluently. You are familiar with colloquialisms and can produce varied speaking styles. You retain a high amount of correct grammar and are as such regarded as a master of the German language. In order to be issued a residency title or to gain citizenship, it is required, amongst other factors, you can prove this level of German language ability.

You will be able to lead high-level discussions on personal and collective memory, whether about globalisation or environmental protection. The focus is on written expression, in order to secure the most error-free and extensively varying style of written German.
