Frequently asked questions

Our courses are broken down and categorized using the CEFR. CEFR stands for the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. This is an internationally recognized standard that helps classify levels of fluency. It starts at A1, considered the beginner level and moves through to C1 for advanced or native-level speakers.

German A2 level is classified as elementary level. Not a complete novice!

We have courses aligned to each level, so whatever your understanding of the language we’ll have the right course for you. It’s important you find the right level so you don’t feel like you’re swamped, but you’re being tested and learning new vocabulary and communication skills.

If you aren’t sure which level you fall under, you can take our completely free CEFR level test. A few questions will give us a better understanding of your grasp of the language so far, and we can help point you towards the right level for you. The courses are designed to be challenging but achievable. We want you to progress quickly, and to have fun while doing so!

At Lingoda, we want to make language learning accessible to everyone, so we have courses that suit every level, moving from A1 beginners right through to C1, which is considered native-level or fluent.

You can move through each stage of the course with us, completing lessons and booking them to fit your schedule. It’s totally remote and easy to get started. So whether you’re an A1 novice, or a B1 committed learner, we’ll help you take the next step towards fluency.

This depends on how committed you are to the program and the effort you’re willing to put in.

If you aim to take five classes a week, you can complete the 50 lesson module in just ten weeks. But the beauty of the Lingoda Method is the flexibility. It’s completely up to you when and where you take the lessons, and at what pace.

It’s easy to start learning. All you need is a computer and a good internet connection. The classes take place on Zoom, which is free to download.
