What better way to start learning a new language from scratch than jumping right in and getting good at the basics?

This course employs a communicative approach involving all five language skills: listening comprehension, speaking, reading, writing, and culture.

Our course helps you to build your confidence in navigating through commonplace situations, such as shopping at the supermarket, asking for directions, ordering food and drink at restaurants, and makings arrangements to meet people.

You can also develop some useful everyday vocabulary!

This course provides a general introduction to the German language, focusing occasionally on specific professional contexts of use related to the world of business or teaching.
