Our German group courses run for 6 weeks and we keep our classes small with no more than 8 students per group, to ensure a comfortable and open learning environment for our students. Small classes = BIG progress with our highly trained and experienced German teachers.

We use Google Hangouts for our online classes, no need to download anything to join our classes, just click the link we provide. Same greatt teachers, same great experience, less commute!
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 GermanMind German School, we follow these guidelines in all of our German classes and courses. 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. We offer Complete German Courses (e.g Complete A1), and, like many other language schools, we also split these levels in half to accommodate students’ time and budget planning (e.g. level A1 is split into A1.1 and A1.2). Our courses take place all year round.
*Once the current restrictions are lifted, we offer the option to join our courses at school.
