The school is badly organized. I studied German at school, so I was already at the A1.2 level. I was told that it would be possible to study at this level, but I was placed in an A1.1 class. I ended up having to change my level (to A2, although without necessary foundations), since A1.2 would only be taught the following week when I would no longer be in Germany! Also, the lunch that was included was in a Turkish restaurant, with only fast food. Although most of the students were Turkish, I and other students were not and we had to eat "plastic" food while we were there. I do not recommend it.

Questions and answers about Verbum Novum GmbH

  • Verbum Novum GmbH only accepts teenage students from the age of 13 and only during specific dates during the summer.
    Rubén De Haro, LanguageCourse.Net - Jan 26, 2023
  • We are an official telc examination center! Students can do the exam preparation and the telc B2 exam with us.
    Natalia, from Verbum Novum - Aug 10, 2023
  • Telc exams are written in pencil, more precisely colored in (the correct answer), because the scanner that corrects the answer sheets only recognizes the pencil. That's the telc exam regulations, you can't do anything about it.
