Course Overview 


Our afternoon German Level 4 is an Elementary German course for students who have already studied some German. German Level 4 requires that you have previously studied German Level 3 or a course of at least 36 class hours. If you’re unsure of your level, then take our quick German language level test here or check our levels chart. 


Our German language classes take place at our school in Covent Garden with a qualified, experienced teacher and fellow students. Evening language classes at IH London are dynamic and interactive as the emphasis is on spoken communication, which is achieved through lots of group work and role-plays. At the same time, there is systematic work on grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, so that you can improve on all aspects of the language. Your teacher speaks in the target language throughout, so that you can refine your comprehension and listening skills.
