Learning B1 German with CEFR-aligned Goals

If you’re looking at the B1 German course, you’re already quite familiar with the language, and you’re ready to start challenging yourself a bit more. Gaining a B1 certificate can help gain German citizenship one year earlier from the German government as it shows a real commitment to the German language.

Once you’ve completed a German B1 online course with Lingoda you should be able to confidently understand and deal with most situations in the workplace, an educational setting or socially. You will be able to produce connected texts of areas of personal interest, and describe your experiences, dreams, hopes and ambitions.

B1 German Course in Real-World Scenarios

Moving from A2 to B1 level is crucial when you are learning a language. In the B1 level all the linguistic, lexical and grammatical basics are covered: in the B1 German course the focus is on more complex topics such as the hypothetical period, the past tense of perfect and preterite verbs, dative and accusative verbs, etc.

The Lingoda Method is designed so that you immediately tackle useful subjects, like “Life Abroad”. We want you to feel confident using what you’ve learned from the very first lesson. As you progress through the levels, guided by our friendly native-level teachers, these topics will get more challenging.

At every stage our teachers will offer personalized feedback, and will round up each session checking that every member of the group has understood. There’s always time for questions, and our teachers are happy to help.

Fully Immersive Learning Experience with Lingoda Sprint

The best way to master a language is to immerse yourself in it fully. When you commit to making your language learning a habit, you’re far more likely to succeed. With that in mind, you can commit to our Lingoda Sprint or Lingoda Super Sprint.

With these courses, you pledge to tackle a certain number of lessons per month, and if you complete these lessons you’ll receive cash back. With the Lingoda Sprint you can receive 50% of your cashback, while the Super Sprint can see you get 100% of your cashback.

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. A B1 level German speaker is considered an Intermediate language speaker.

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.

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.

How quickly you make your way through the course depends on the work and time you’re willing to put in. The best way to see real results is to commit to making your lessons a habit. Like every level of our CEFR-aligned syllabus, German B1 has 50 lessons. If you take five lessons per week, you’ll be ready for level 2 in just ten weeks. Or you can tackle the classes at a slower pace of one lesson per week and spread your learning out over twelve months.

If you’re taking the German B1 course to gain a certificate for the citizenship exam, you might want to consider our Sprint or Super Sprint option. Here you’ll commit to a certain number of classes per month. If you’re successful in completing your Sprint, you can earn up to 100% cashback. If that doesn’t encourage your learning we don’t know what will! Just make sure you’re committed in your classes, ask questions and engage. Taking control of your learning will help you learn quickly.

Yes you will! As you progress through each CEFR level you’ll receive a certificate to track your progress. CEFR is an internationally recognized standard, so employers and educational establishments will acknowledge the achievement. You can even add your certificates to LinkedIn or mention them on your CV.

If you’re looking to gain your German citizenship, a B1 level certificate is a good way to prove your language proficiency. Because our course syllabus is aligned with CEFR standards, your certificate of completion will be accepted as part of your German citizenship test.

It’s easy to get started with Lingoda. To sign up, just choose a course and an intensity that matches your language learning goal. Select the day, time or topic that you’d like to learn to book your class, log into the class and you’re on the way. Remember to take advantage of the platform features, recap the lessons, read annotated PDFs from your teachers, and complete the homework for even faster results.
