Master the basics of German: numbers, the alphabet, introducing yourself and having simple conversations while learning about German culture. We use an integrated approach that quickly has you speaking and writing. No prerequisites.
Note: You will not be able to view the course on your Canvas Dashboard or access the materials until the course start date.
Instructional videos and interactive online materials in the Canvas course platform introduce new grammar and vocabulary and teach pronunciation, listening and reading skills. Participants should budget 3-4 hours a week to work through the online asynchronous materials in preparation for the live online conversation groups. Participants practice speaking live with the instructor in small groups of 3-6 students in 30-minute weekly sessions. Groups will vary weekly, so participants should be available for the entire one-hour time slot. Online course materials are available one week before the first live conversation class and remain accessible for one month after the course ends.
