Who is the A1 language course aimed at?
The A1.1 course is a German course for beginners without any previous knowledge of the German language.
The A1.2 is a course for beginners with some basic German language skills.
What do I learn?
Our A1.1 course is designed for complete beginners; no prior knowledge of German is needed. Here you will learn the basics of German grammar as well as develop simple communication skills i.e. to introduce yourself and others, to talk about yourself and your hobbies, to talk about emotions and expectations, plans and past events. You will learn common language that is used in everyday situations which will help you start communicating in German. The A1.2 course is aimed at learners who already have some basic knowledge of the language and wish to improve.
The topics that will be covered in the A1 course include among others: in the office, at university, leisure time, food and drink, everyday situations, travel, housing, body parts, health. You will learn the basics of German grammar and vocabulary like: numbers, countries, occupations, directions and much more!

How is the A1 German course structured?
The A1 level consists of two parts: A1.1 and A1.2. Each part lasts 4 weeks. The whole A1 level lasts 8 weeks. See all course dates above and choose between an Intensive and Superintensive course. At the end of the course a final test is given – if you participate in the course (at least 80%) and pass the test, you can get a certificate from us.
What is the difference between an intensive and a superintensive course?
The intensive German course lasts 3 teaching units (45 minutes) per day, the superintensive German course is slightly longer: it lasts 4 teachings units per day. Both German courses cover the same amount of material, but the Superintensive course gives you more time to practice what you have learned.

This is how you learn with us
Our teaching methods are focused on the practical usage of German language in a dynamic and playful way with a lot of interaction with other fellow students i.e. through group and pair work, role plays, short presentations, assignments etc. Our methods encourage speaking and active participation of each student in class from the first day on, whereas learning German becomes fun and learning progress becomes visible more quickly. We only use German during classes and this allows our students to learn in a more natural way and helps them overcome the fear of speaking and also of making mistakes. Our qualified and creative teachers design our German lessons …… READ MORE

Our teaching methods
• Dynamic, communicative teaching approach: i.e. a lot of speaking!
• The focus lies on the active application of what has been learned from the first lesson onwards.
• The only language used in class is German.
• Regular evaluation of the learning progress of our students through repetitions and language tests
• Frequent use of the direct method, which conveys the feeling for the German language in a playful way through conversation, listening and repeating, role plays as well as visual elements.
• Error correction and feedback from the teacher
• Our native-speaking teachers convey an authentic feeling for language. Well-trained and experienced, easy to deal with and motivated, creative and open.
• Up-to-date, varied and well-chosen teaching materials, which are also aimed at imparting knowledge about Germany.
• The linguistic ability and skill areas are derived from the four basic skills (speaking, writing, listening and reading); the skill of speaking is divided into two parts: participating in conversations (interactional speaking) and speaking coherently (transactional speaking). This results in five areas of ability and skill. It is particularly important to us to develop these five linguistic abilities and skills of each student equally and to promote them with appropriate learning tasks.
