At Level B2 the student can:

Levels from A1 to B1 are divided into two sub-levels (e.g. A1a and A1b). Each sub-level is taught over one semester (63 hours). Level B2 is a class that is focused especially on the needs of most students to keep their high level by practising German and become more fluent and advanced. The B2 courses are topic-oriented and a mix of repetition as well as acquisition of new structures and vocabulary.
Special Classes: MGS also offers special courses for individuals and groups, e.g. private tuition, company courses, etc on availability. For more details please contact our office.
For us, learning has to be fun. Our classes are taught in a communicative way in a relaxed learning environment. Small classes ensure an individual and personal atmosphere, facilitate interaction, and enable the teachers to respond to every student. Extracurricular activities such as film shows, students’ barbecue party and participation in MGS events and functions provide our students with opportunities to practice their language skills and to learn more about German culture.
Semesters are from January to June and from July to December, every year.
Each semester consists of 63h of classes. Classes are once per week for 3 hours over a total of 21 weeks. To obtain a full level (e.g. A1) you will have to sit for two semesters of regular classes (e.g. 1st semester A1a and 2nd semester A1b).
