Class Description

This level is for anyone who has already learned some German and is in between the A 1.1 and A 1.2-level. This course is great for people who have already been studying for example with Duolingo or Babbel or with a German partner. With this course, you can complete the first level in only 3 weeks and then, you could right away continue with level A 1.2 and finish level A1 (needed for most visas when moving to Germany) by the beginning of July. You should already be able to introduce yourself (hallo, ich heiße...; ich bin...), ask how someone is doing and respond ("Wie geht es dir? - Mir geht es gut.") say where you are from (e.g., "Ich komme aus den USA."), where you live (e.g., "Ich wohne in NYC."), count up to 10 and know some basic vocabulary (e.g. 'gehen', 'machen', 'trinken' etc.). You should further be somewhat familiar with the German articles (you don't need to know the articles for every noun, but you should be aware that there are 3 definite articles (der, die and das) and 2 indefinite articles (ein and eine). In this course, we will focus on the basics of the German language that are typically not well explained in language learning apps or computer programs. More specifically, we will start learning the German pronunciation rules, how to conjugate verbs (regular and irregular verbs), how to ask questions and how to negate a sentence. After this course, you could right away continue with level A 1.2 starting from July 28. We have very small class sizes with a maximum of 5 students per class. That way, we ensure that all course participants receive a lot of one-on-one attention, so the class can be tailored to our students' needs. This enables our students to learn the language very fast and efficiently. We pursue a conversational approach in all our classes to get our students to speak the language confidently as quickly as possible, however, there is a stronger focus on grammar in this specific class. Please note that if only 1 student signed up for this course, we will have to cancel this course. Alternatively, you can choose to take 3 x 1-hour private classes instead (value: ~$200). The course fee of $125 covers all the costs - 3 classes à 2 hours, the coursebook and the registration fee. All online language courses are held via Zoom and we ask you to install the Zoom desktop app before the class. You will receive the link within 24 hours before the course starts.
