German summer work

Overview

Welcome to ​German at Hills Road!

By the time you start your ​German lessons here in September, it will have been some time since you had formal lessons; your language skills might get a little rusty unless you keep them going.

The work

We are keen that you do not forget all the German you have learned and want to give you some tips on how to keep your language skills going and improve further. It will be enormously helpful to you and us if you do all the following suggestions over the next few months, to keep up your practice, and give you confidence when you start.

We look forward to meeting you in September.

Schöne Ferien!
