Completing a full set of courses (from the beginners level A1 until the advanced level C2) takes approximately 2 years. Upon completion of each course module, the attendants will receive a graduation certificate which will contain information regarding the type and duration of the graduated course, the grade obtained at the final examination, as well as a recommendation from the trainer for the next stage of study. For international acknowledgment of the acquired language skills, we are offering hours of preparation and testing for obtaining the language certificates acknowledged internationally. (TOEFL, IELTS, CAMBRIDGE, DELE, ZERTIFIKAT DEUTSCH etc.) The quality of our foreign languages courses consists in the exceptional skills of our team of trainers, composed, mostly, of native speaker teachers.
Details of the levels of proficiency, according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages:
A1. The student can understand familiar words and very basic phrases concerning himself, his family and immediate concrete surroundings when people speak slowly and clearly.

He can interact in a simple way provided the other person is prepared to repeat or rephrase things at a slower rate of speech and help him formulate what he is trying to say.
A2. The student can understand phrases and the highest frequency vocabulary related to areas of most immediate personal relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local area, employment. He can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar topics and activities. The student can use a series of phrases and sentences to describe in simple terms aspects from his past, as well as elements connected to his immediate needs, living conditions, his educational background and his present or most recent job.

B2. The student can understand the main ideas of complex texts, on abstract and concrete topics, including technical topics related to this field of activity. The student can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible. I can present clear, detailed descriptions on a wide range of subjects related to my field of interest. I can explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
