German Beginners Level 1

German Beginners Level 1

This course will suit beginners who have no previous knowledge of German.


The aim of the course is to develop your ability to understand and respond to spoken and written German. It will help you to communicate effectively in authentic situations, such as in restaurants and shops. It will help you to ask for information in various contexts, to respond to people and talk about yourself, your family and your home life. The focus of the course is on conversation and you will learn the basics of German grammar so that you can begin to manipulate the language. You will develop the listening skill to understand what people say and gradually be ready to cope with the unexpected. You will be encouraged to build up your own vocabulary lists and to consolidate material covered in class between lessons.
