An A2 German course typically covers the following key grammar topics:

  • Konjunktiv II (subjunctive II)
  • Expressing the future tense

  • Prepositions in the dative and accusative cases
  • Forming main and subordinate clauses
  • Forming indirect questions

The A2 German exam conducted by the telc or Goethe Institut consists of two main parts:

  1. Written Exam (approximately 70 minutes):

    • Listening: 20 minutes
    • Reading and Writing: 50 minutes
  2. Oral Exam: 15 minutes

Our course is structured into chapters, each introducing new vocabulary and gradually teaching you A2 level German grammar step by step.

We incorporate a variety of exercises in our A2 German course to practice listening, writing, reading, and speaking skills.

You will engage with single and multiple-choice questions, review flashcards, fill in blank spaces, and write texts that will be corrected by your private teacher. Additionally, you will have opportunities to practice speaking with your private teacher, and quizzes at the end of each chapter help reinforce your learning.

The average time to complete one chapter is one hour.

The course is designed for progress in manageable, “snackable” sessions. By investing 30 to 60 minutes per learning session, you will make steady progress.

Our German A2 exam mirrors the structure of the telc or Goethe exams, ensuring you are perfectly prepared for the official tests of these institutes.

The exam structure is twofold. First, you will take a written exam lasting approximately 70 minutes, which tests your listening, reading, and writing skills. Following that, you will have an oral exam to assess your speaking skills.

Our course is specifically designed to prepare you for each section of the official exam.

Throughout the course, you will practice all sections, ensuring you are perfectly prepared for the exam.

You do not need any additional learning materials beyond our course content.

As you progress through the course, you will learn using interactive exercises.

Upon completing each chapter, you will receive a vocabulary list and a grammar cheat sheet summarizing all the content you need to review from that chapter.
