We spontaneously converse with each other and discuss current topics of interest. The intermediary level also includes the continuous improvement of your written ability.

At the end this level, you have a good knowledge of German. You can understand the main content of complex texts about specific and abstract issues, as well as specialist discussions from your own area of expertise.
You can make yourself understood so fluently and spontaneously that a normal conversation with native speakers is perfectly possible, without a great deal of effort for either party. In addition, you have no problem clearly and explicitly expressing yourself on a wide range of topics, explaining your view of a current issue and stating the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
