Deutsch Goethe or Telc Zertifikat Level A2 spoken und A1 in writing, Canton Zug
 
Good day all,

Deutsch Goethe or Telc Zertifikat Level A2 spoken und A1 in writing.

Canton Zug, Amt für Migration requirement for C permit.

British Citizen, Permit B (first 5 years) - Another permit B issued for another 5 years) German language qualifications - very poor.

What is the best way to go about his?

How long of a process is this? (I know this can vary from person to person)

Please recommend courses in Zug (Cham better)

experiences differ from person to person and from teacher to teacher.

i studied at a language school in Baar for about 8 months and passed A2 with no problems. but at that time the requirement was: A2 reading and writing and B1 listening and speaking. i failed B1 listening part to the amusement of my OH (see, it's official, you never listen) :D.

retook B1 following year with flying colours.

you have to want it in order to get it. Good luck!

I highly recommend Soft Landing in Baar (I can send you the name of my teacher via DM if that might be helpful). Did my B1 exam last year.

Personal opinion is that one needs to invest in one-on-one lessons (specifically focused on exam prep) if this is what you are working towards. You can get bogged down in the group sessions for months where it doesn't feel as though much progress is being made in being able to sit the exam (which is in of itself not true because you are learning the whole time).

I found that explaining to the teacher what my ultimate objective was helped her understand what it was that I wanted to achieve, and then assisted in setting reasonable goals in terms of timing expectations, etc.

The adverse side of this approach is that you do tend to focus on those elements that are tested in the exam, rather than receiving a fulsome education on all the nuances that German can bring.

Edit: I did the Goethe exam, and it took me about 8 cumulative months of 1 hour weekly sessions to prepare for and pass the exam.

I have done so many different classes as I am such a slow learner. GI in Freiburg, DE was the most expensive and hardest (tough teachers), Klubschule, Basel was dreadful (awful teacher), ECAP in Zurich (good) etc.

Local to Cham, I did my B1 Prufungs training course at KBZ in Zug:

I passed B1 with a <ahem> modest result and got the C permit recently.

I am now continuing through B2 with a mixture of online lessons with Roth Aetelier which i am really happy with - great teacher, good structure. Lessons are recorded via zoom and a whiteboard so you watch later

https://www.languageatelier.com/

I also have a tutor once a fortnight to help me in English with my German language questions and to chat in German, when I am too tired. I found her via one of the online teaching portals and now pay her direclty.

Hope that helps.

For my B1 I took about 10 private lessons in Castles (Zug), I think it was helpful.

For C1 I didn’t bother, just bought a couple of test preparation books. Also worked fine :)

You can also do the FIDE exam. I think it is a bit easier and it is also accepted for a C Bewilligung.
Once you have completed the A2 Course, a personal tutor is helpful to fill in the gaps.
There are also some really great books out there - This one I found really helpful:
Schaum`s Outlines - German Grammer.
As to schools - ZHAW in Zürich is really good.
EB in Zürich also has so short specific courses, like Grammer or writing. In my opinion, once you have completed a A2 Course, but struggle with one part of the language, a short specific course can be really helpful.
But yes, German is really tough!
Good Luck!!!
