Lingoda’s German language courses are structured in line with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), which separates students into six different levels. We issue globally-recognised German certificates for successful completion of each level and the first of those levels is called Level A1.
Students at Level A1 are at the lowest point of basic German language use, according to the framework. Sometimes called ‘Breakthrough’, this level centres around the satisfaction of concrete needs and can be considered the point at which a learner can understand, read, write and verbally communicate simple German phrases and expressions.
In order to pass this level, a language student should be able to ask and answer simple questions on topics like their family, their surroundings, their possessions and their immediate needs. Simple interactions in German should be possible, as long as the other party is cooperative and talks slowly and clearly.
Our courses focus on all different aspects of language use, including speaking, listening, reading and writing. Below, we provide a breakdown of the different skills a learner should have in order to pass German Level A1.
Tips that will help you at this level:
At Lingoda, we structure our courses in line with the internationally-recognised Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Therefore, the certificates students earn from us are accepted by institutions around the world, including universities, businesses and even as part of a visa application.
Every time you complete a German course at a certain level, you will receive the corresponding certificate, which serves as evidence of your ability level. As the CEFR is internationally recognised, it is easy for employers and other institutions to know roughly what you are capable of, based on the certificates you have.
Lingoda certificates provide proof of your ability in terms of speaking, reading, writing and listening, whereas other language qualifications may only provide evidence of certain aspects. All certificates are included in the price of your course and a PDF file is also securely saved to your account and available to access online.
Acquiring German language certificates from Lingoda can open up new and exciting opportunities, helping to boost your employment prospects or meet the language requirements of certain universities. In total, there are six different certificates available: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2.
