Students will build on the skills developed in the beginner's course. They will learn how to describe what they like to do in their free time, such as play sport or a musical instrument, and improve their understanding of German grammar eg word order. Course participants will also learn how to name family members and count to 100. Furthermore, emphasis will be placed on correct gender and plural usage and how to express possession and negation.
Listening, speaking, reading and writing skills will all be developed through the use of modern and engaging course materials, multimedia and fun classroom activities. Depending on student preferences, a classic German-language film (with subtitles) might be viewed in the final lesson.
