Hallo, wie geht's dir?
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.

Course Duration and Costs
All costs can be supported with a KA grant under the Erasmus+ programme.
For a 6-day course, Learning Together charges 580 euros per participant (A+B).
For our 6-day course, the course fee is 480 EUR per participant, for tuition and materials (6-day course x 80,00 EUR per day). This can be covered with the course fee that you receive with your KA1 grant: 80 EUR / day / person.
The course fee for our 2022 courses has been adjusted to meet the new KA1 grant budget (Erasmus+ Programme 2021-2027). Before, sending organisations received 70€/day/person for course fees. Now, the new KA1 grant provides 80€/day/person.
Payment of 100 EUR per participant (total amount).
This fee also includes our social program, which you can see below.
In the previous Erasmus+ programme, each educational organisation also received 350 EUR per participant for organisational support. Learning Together only charged 150 EUR for administration and organisation costs (local organisation and logistics, pedagogical support activities, learning validation, certification and Europass Mobility validation). With the new programme, the organisational support fees are now a standard 100 EUR per person – however, they can vary according project type (job-sadowing, long-term,…).
