This course is for those of you who have completed two years of German. It is a very communicative course where you build upon what you have been learning in previous years. On this course you are encouraged to be creative with the language as there is less emphasis on grammar and verb tenses although you will still work on tenses and grammatical points. There is a lot of emphasis on communication and you will work on idiomatic expressions.

Please note that this course is planned to be delivered online using Microsoft Teams. Access details will be sent through upon course confirmation.

You will work on the past tense with more detail, using different verb tenses to narrate past events with detail. Reflecting on yourself as learners and your techniques, challenging any difficulties you have with the subject, etc. that need to be reviewed. You will then learn about the future tense and talk about what you hope will happen. Eventually all this will lead to work on the imperative to learn how to give instructions or advice which ultimately ends with your first contact with the subjunctive mode.

In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2 ½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

As this is a non-accredited course, there is no formal qualification. However, you will be asked to complete activities that demonstrate how you are progressing on your course.
Through the encouragement of your tutor you will use different techniques for your learning and will be assessed through a variety of methods from peer review to group discussion. Collaboration is critical to allow you to have fun whilst learning so there is emphasis on paired and small group work as your focus is on speaking and listening. To allow you to gain insight into different dialects there will be use of audio and visual tools to aid in this. There will also be some written continuation work to help you construct your learning from week to week.
