• How long does the program take to complete?

Each course level typically lasts up to 8 weeks. So, completing all levels can take between 8 months to 1 year.

  • What is the cost of the program?

The fees depend on the package you choose and the class size. We offer group discounts. Some partner agencies might cover the fees, but this is not guaranteed.

  • Where can I take the language tests?

You can take your tests at TELC, GOETHE, and ÖSD Test centers.

  • Does enrollment guarantee my move to Germany?

No. Relocation and work in Germany is based on the employer’s decisions. We have partners who often hire our students, but we can't always guarantee this. We recommend focusing on the German language certification, and ideally, securing an employment contract with our partners beforehand. Having the certification can greatly increase your appeal to employers.

  • Do I need an employer before enrolling?

It depends. If you're looking for an employer to cover the course fees, then yes. If you already have an employer or are pursuing the certification as a personal goal, then no.

  • Will you help me find employers after certification?

Occasionally, we might offer referrals when partners are seeking candidates. However, we cannot guarantee employment, as our main service is language training.

  • Is Auto Lingo Plus a recruitment agency?

No. We focus on helping students pass the language certification. Auto Lingo Plus does not directly offer employment.

  • Is there an age limit for enrollment?

Age restrictions are typically set by the employer, not us. In Germany, the working age can extend up to 60-70 for those who are physically and mentally fit.
