Immerse yourself into the German language!

Or maybe you wish to communicate with your German speaking relatives? Or you are simply fascinated with the German or European culture and feel like learning another language for personal pleasure? Whatever your reasons might be - get started by attending this course tailored for total beginners.

This class will focus mainly on the development of basic conversational skills (speaking and listening), but also introduces the other essential elements of language learning like writing and reading.

The combination of all four skills will help students to understand some of the essential basics of the German language quite quickly and to apply them in various situations of practice.

  • Practise of common phrases in role play e.g. party conversation
  • Learn about formal and informal language structures
