German I

Aimed at those with very lit­tle or no back­ground in Ger­man. It takes a task-based approach to learn­ing using prac­ti­cal sit­u­a­tions from every­day life. Get intro­duced to com­mon expres­sions and acquire vocab­u­lary in top­ics such as: greet­ings, intro­duc­tions, order­ing food, time of day, shop­ping, com­pli­ments and more. Dis­cuss the cul­ture of Ger­man-speak­ing coun­tries and learn about basic pro­nun­ci­a­tion rules, the use of verbs, the use of present tense and past tense, sen­tence struc­ture, and the use of cas­es. Ger­man I cov­ers lev­el A1.1 of the Euro­pean CEFR-scale.
