Class Description

This level is for anyone who can easily use the present and past tenses to talk about everyday activities. You should feel comfortable in the present and past tense (Perfekt) and be able to use accusative and dative cases as well as the respective adjective endings (e.g. Ich bin mit meinem kleinen Hund spazieren gegangen). You will also be expected to know some verbs that require the dative case (e.g. Ich helfe dem Mann.) and the word order following "wenn" (e.g. Wenn die Sonne scheint, gehen wir zum Strand.) You should be able to speak about the weather, to order food, to describe living arrangements and to discuss topics of health and express likes and dislikes. In this level, students will learn reflexive verbs (e.g. sich waschen), further conjunctions (i.a. obwohl), and clauses to build more complex sentences. We will learn the future tense to talk about future plans and dreams, and you will learn the Infinitivkonstruktion mit zu (e.g. I am excited to see you = Ich freue mich dich zu sehen). We will do many speaking exercises in this level to get more comfortable talking. 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. When learning a language, it is crucial to actually practice speaking the language to be prepared for conversations in real life situations. This can be achieved best in an intimate class setting with few students as each student benefits from having lots of time to speak in class. The course fee of $279 covers all the costs - 10 classes à 1.5 hours, the coursebook and the registration fee. Everyone signing up by January 3 will receive a $50-discount when using the coupon code EARLYBIRD. All online language courses are held via Zoom and we would ask you to install the Zoom desktop app before the class. You will receive the link within 24 hours before the course starts. After successfully completing the class, we offer to provide a certificate of completion upon request. We are committed to offering follow-up courses for all our students who wish to continue taking the next higher course level. We will offer follow-up courses starting in April, July and October.
