Course Types
Many customers ask about our classification into Beginners, Elementary, Intermediate and Advanced group courses. In order to provide our students with a clear path to follow and to evaluate their progress along the way, Language Must has developed a system based on the CEFR. This system is accepted by an increasing number of organisations across the Delhi NCR. The British High Commission, for example, recognises our certificates and grades their staff accordingly.

Hindi Levels
After completing two consecutive courses with Language Must, students achieve the equivalent of one CEFR level. That is, after passing Beginners and Elementary 1 courses, students achieve the equivalent of A1. After passing Elementary 2 and 3 courses, students achieve the equivalent of A2.

Hindi/Urdu Exams

After successfully passing the exam, we will issue you a certificate stating your performance as well as your CEFR equivalence level.
