Kapitel Zwei Berlin FAQ

FAQ

Here, you can find answers to important questions that you might have in connection with our school and your German classes.


1. Is it possible to only participate 1, 2 or 3 weeks in a German course? Can I start in the middle of the course?

Our German courses run for 4 weeks. If you don’t have 4 weeks to take part, we put you on the waiting list and will decide in the second week of the course if you can join the German course. If we have places left in the second course week, you are very welcome to participate with a reduced course fee.

2. What is a reservation? When do I have to pay my German course?

Like in a restaurant we reserve a place for you until a certain date. Until that date you can pay for your course whenever you want. After that date, we cannot guarantee that the place in the course will still be available to you.

3. Can I pay the German course at the first day of class?

You will need  to pay your course fee by the reservation date given to you, in order for us to ensure your attendance and plan courses accordingly. Unfortunately there are no exceptions.

4. Can I change the time of my German course?

If you decide for one time frame for the course, you will normally stay in that class. If there are free places left at another time, you’ll might be able to switch the class.

In this case please read our terms and conditions (§5).

Yes, that’s possible. You can find all payment options on our homepage.

No, unfortunately not. In order to follow the class as best as possible, you should finish one level within one month.

8. Can I get a registration confirmation for a period for over 3 months or more?

Yes, we can give you a registration confirmation for over 3 months or more. Therefor it is important that you register officially at our German language school and pay the complete fee of the first month in advance. For the following months, we will reserve a place in the appropriate courses for you.

9. Will there be an exam at the end of the German course?

In general, you can book the follow-up course without any exam, but Kapitel Zwei offers the official telc Deutsch B1, B2 and C1 Hochschule exam or TestDaF exam.


10. Which book do we use in the German course?

We work with different books.

If you have booked an online course in a virtual classroom, you will receive the name and ISBN number of the print edition or the link to the online books & licenses probably 3-4 days before the course starts.

If you have booked an offline course in a real classroom, we will usually only provide the name of the book on the first day of the course. On your first day at our school you will receive a warm welcome; we will sell the coursebook in the entrance hall and you will be shown the way to your classroom.

You can pay for the book(s) in cash or by card (ideally with an debit card; if necessary with a credit card). They cost between 20 and 30 EUR.

11. Can I borrow the book?

We no longer offer the lending of our work and course books.

Our website provides you with a detailed response.

13. Do you offer as well health insurance?

Our students are very happy with the following health insurance. You can fill in the registration form online, they will get in touch with you.

14. Admission letter

We offer FREE registration confirmations for our German language courses. We don’t offer the so-called “conditional admission letters from German universities”. Other language schools will help you with that.

15. Who is my teacher?

Our teachers are qualified, trained teachers, nice & welcoming, German native speakers or at native speaking level.
Please be aware that we cannot guarantee that you will keep your current teacher for the follow up course. (e.g. due to holidays, sickness or other projects).

Therefore we usually only know which teacher will teach your course around one week, sometimes only even 3 days before the course starts. However, we take great care that the follow-up teacher fits in with your previous course and teacher and that you can continue to gain very good experience!
