I am planning to take up German language classes to apply for jobs in Germany. I am a little confused due to the following factors: 1. How effective is online training? 2. I consulted many institutes .each of them offer different duration of course for same certification. I want to know how many hours of classes are required on an average to do a1 certification for a beginner.

Hi Swati A1 certification requires 45 hours of training (including the Goethe exam training). Online training is as effective as classroom training. It works comparatively smoothly over skype. Regards Shivani

Hi, It is true that without German language skill you cannot find a job in Germany. in order to work in a German environment where the official work is carried out in English you should have B1 level of proficiency, but in offices where everything is carried in German, you need to have B2 or higher level of German language skill. In Germany usually one level takes 3 months(a1.1 +a1.2= a1) provided one takes 3 to 4 hour class 5 days a week. In India however it is a difficult task but i must say it isn't impossible. you can learn it by yourself from DW.de however you will sometime require that kick to get going. Find a private tutor or join a class where there are many students and take those classes. It will help you clear your doubts and chance to interact with people trying to learn. secondly keep going through internet materials. Focus on grammar and vocabulary at first. next start reading and then once you have a considerable amount of word count, watch kids stories because they are the easiest to understand or go through programmes on Dw.de. hope this helps. read less

For language learning, online training has its limitations. Most good trainers use group activities for memory/retention. Online learning means no or limited group activities. Classroom training is preferred, but if you have time constraints to travel to teacher's place, online is a compromise. For a beginner, A1 level requires minimum 50 hours of face to face teaching. This does not include time students spend doing home work. Also, if you are appearing for exam, you need to spend additional hours doing practice papers. read less

Like Nilima said, online training has its limitations. However, I would strongly suggest you first get a taste of how the language is on a fantastic app 'DuoLingo' (available both on Android and Apple stores) and take it forward from there.

Online course is not effective, hence should not be preferred. 40-50 hours of classes are normally prescribed by reknown institutes such as Goethe Institute. 'Interaction' is the soul essential key point while learning a foreign language, which you would surely be deprived of during 'Online Classes'...

Weekend batches for A1 level starting on 7.03.2015 Timings:8.30-10.30am

In my optional, online Training is not so effektive in learning a new language.Language is more of Talking and interakting with other people Which an online course can not Provide.Language learning Should be fun, other wie people normally lose interest

Dear Swathi, This is a good thought, to learn a foreign language. Here are my answers: 1. Unlike any other subject, it is very important to learn the language face to face. but in today's world any online interactive tools can give you the same platform to learn the language sitting in your own house comfortably and learning it via skype. 2. It is up to your capacity to adapt the skill. It is just like learning music. Some people learn it fast and for some it may take time. But usually one can finish the course of A1 within 20 weeks, with 7-8 hrs learning per week read less

Foreign language until and unless focused 100 % its difficult to master it. And as far as job in Germany is concerned you need to have a advance proficiency in German language like B1 level. and apart from learning in the classroom you should also use German in your Surroundings For example : Watching movies and speaking in German with your friends .and also socializing with the German speaking friends on Facebook - The Bottom line is "The more you get involved with the language the more you will learn".So for A1 level it takes around one and half month, And i would suggest you to learn the language one on o its helpful you can ask the trainer once again if you are not getting the Flow. read less
