What is Level B2.2 in German?

by Stephan Brenner

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR or CEF for short) is a standardized guideline used to describe achievements of learners of foreign languages across Europe and beyond. At Expath's language schools in Berlin, we follow these guidelines in all of our German classes.

How Does it Work?

These levels are classified as A1 for beginners, A2 for elementary, B1 for intermediate, B2 for upper intermediate, C1 as advanced, and C2 as mastery.

Expath, like many other language schools, splits these levels in half to accommodate students' time and budget planning (e.g. level A1 is split into A1.1 and A1.2).

To start with level A1, you are expected to have no knowledge of German.

What Does it Mean for You?

After completing level B2.2, you'll be able to:

  • understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in your field of specialization.​​

  • interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party.​​

  • produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
