Are you joining us with previous learning German experience or are you a continuing student but not sure whether moving on to the next level is right for you? Please take our placement tests to find the class level that fits your needs best. Begin with Elementary German I and move on to the next test as you score 80% and more. We recommend to register for the class level of the test in which you achieved less than 80%.
