    "Teachers have very good levels of vocational knowledge and expertise which they use creatively and effectively to bring learning to life.” (Ofsted, 2013)

    This course is suitable for students who have never studied German before or who studied the language years ago and want to go back to the basics. Over the course of the year students will : • Study the vocabulary of everyday topics which will enable them to get by when travelling to a German speaking country and to communicate on a simple level with local people. • Be introduced to simple but authentic reading texts • Become familiar with the basic rules of German grammar, simple sentences independently and to produce simple pieces of writing such as postcards & informal emails • Through the study of the language, become familiar with many aspects of German life and culture Students will have studied a selection of the following topics: • Family and personal details • Where I live • Work • Free time and hobbies / likes and dislikes • Out and about (in the cafe/restaurant, directions, shopping) Students will be familiar with gender (masculine, feminine and neuter) and case (nominative, accusative and dative) and be able to use the present tense. You do not need to bring anything more than pen and paper and the willingness to try out the language. The teacher will let you know which text book is going to be used, so that you can purchase / order it before the next class All students need to purchase the text book (cost: £12.00 - £15.00).
