When will I be fluent in German?
The short answer is – it depends on you!
Some factors are how fast you learn, what type of class you attend, how many hours of self-studying you do, and which other languages you know. It also matters, if you live in a german speaking country.
According to the Common European Framework Of Reference For Languages this is the average amount of German lessons you take need to take for each level. These are lessons with a teacher, so they are called teaching units. One teaching unit (TU) is 45min.
80 – 200 Teaching Units
260 – 350 Teaching Units
350 – 600 Teaching Units
600 – 800 Teaching Units
800 – 1000 Teaching Units
min. 1000 Teaching Units
Level A1 takes about 1 year.
Level A2 takes about another year
and for level B1 you need about a year or a year and a half.
However, it’s possible to learn much faster – it all depends on the hours you put in 🙂
