The goal of the course is to follow the general teaching program, but the topics and grammar are expanded and supplemented. On this level, the topics in the textbook are completely covered.


The focus of the B1 level is to combine vocabulary, written and oral summaries of the texts from the course book as well as additional texts and listening comprehension. In addition to listening, oral and written texts are combined.

On this level the grammatical themes such as nominalizations (temporal, causal, consequent, conditional, etc.), the passive (passive, passive-only present and präteritum), the subjunctive II-passiv etc., passive-sentences, indirect speech (subjunctive I) completely covered.


These grammatical themes are regularly practiced and repeated in our courses.


The B1 textbook consists of reading and listening texts and other materials. In the 5th week of the course we start to work with more complex texts.


At the end of the B1 course the students write a final exam. The exam consists of 4 parts: reading, listening, grammar and text production. Passing the final examination entitles the students to take part in upper intermediate level II (B 2).
The students who successfully pass the B1 final examination receive a B1 certificate.
