B2 - German

The B2-level provides the basis for a proficient language user.

If you have already learned German on your own or elsewhere and have reached level B1 in a free placement test, the B2-course is the right choice for you.

The teaching language will be exclusively German. Authentic and current topics will be discussed during lessons and students will be given the opportunity to express their point of view on a variety of social issues.

At the end of the course students will be able to understand complex texts and abstract content, to analyse pros and cons on issues, and to discuss their arguments in German.
More general information about our courses can be found in the module handbook and the Study and Examination Regulations (not barrier-free).

The B2 level is one of the entrance requirements for many degree programs at the FHWS. Here you can get an overview of language entrance requirements of FHWS.
