  1. B1 prep course?

    Hadn’t seen that thread. Thanks. I will also look into that book
  2. B1 prep course?

    Anyone know of someplace that offers prep courses for B1 on weekends, evenings, or possibly even online? Preferably Telc. I need a B1 certificate to keep my job. I think I’m ready to take it on my own but I am trying to make it a sure thing and would appreciate recommendations. thank you
  3. Children’s song.

    Anyone know a children’s song “I am Raven”. I don’t remember the German version. Other than Ich bin Rabe. I’ve been trying to find it on google and YouTube and no luck. It’s basically   I am Raven I am Raven rain comes from garden haven show me shadow show me light so I don’t forget.   I may not be remembering it exactly but that’s really close for sure.

  5. German B1 certification

    I don’t expect the government to pay for the course. The fee of the course is not the issue at all. The government pays my salary.
  6. German B1 certification

    So the way I understand it, it’s not really up to my employer but to the government. I work at a private kindergarten but I am paid by the government through a grant program. I will talk to my boss this week and see if they’re aware of what is sufficient. Unfortunately I’m the first foreign language speaker they’ve hired in a few years and things have changed a bit since the last one they did hire I think. I’ve met all other requirements. My employer likes me. The kids like me. They want me to stay. This is just the last thing needed and there is no way to extend it or get around it.
  7. German B1 certification

    I am living in Berlin and working in a kindergarten. When my contract expires, to receive a new contract I need a B1 certification. I’ve completed A2.2 but haven’t been using my german much recently so I’m a bit rusty. Is there an online course that offers an exam test at the end of the course? I’d like to do it online because I work 40 hours a week. Doesn’t leave me too much room to take a class (yes I know I could take evening classes. Just seeing if there’s another way). I have seen plenty of online courses that offer certificates recognized by universities but are there any recognized by the government, as that is what I need for my job.
