A2 - Courses

Our A2 courses are based on the knowledge acquired in the previous level A1.

If you have already studied German on your own or elswehere and you reach level A1 in a free placement test, the A2 course is just the right choice for you.

Our teachers will speak simple German. English will be used if needed. You will be prepared for everyday life in Germany.

At the end of the course, students will be able to talk about themselves, their education, their work, etc. and to communicate in routine situations.  

More general information about our courses can be found in the module handbook.

International students in English-language degree programmes at FHWS must prove at least an A2 level of German by the end of the second semester.
