German Beginners

Course information

The group course German Beginners is suitable for anyone who has no previous experience of German. Starting with ‘Woher kommen Sie?’ and ‘Wie heißen Sie?’ students will be introduced to the German language.

This group course will allow you to acquire basic speaking, listening and reading skills. In addition, your teacher will cover writing brief standard sentences.

On completing German Beginners, you will be able to introduce yourself, as well as ask and answer questions about yourself. You will learn to hold brief conversations in German (for example when shopping) and will develop a concise basic understanding of grammar (the present and past tenses of the verbs 'to be' and 'to have', the nominative and accusative cases and plurals) and vocabulary (figures, telling the time, introductions, eating and drinking).

If you successfully complete this course, you will receive a certificate showing the level you have attained and you will be able to continue to German level 2.
