A1 - offers
Our A1-courses provide a structured introduction to the language.
No previous knowledge is needed, because they are addressed to beginners.
Our teachers will speak simple German. English will be used if needed. A wide range of material will be used during lessons. Students will have the chance to learn about German culture and society.
At the end of the course students will be able to understand and use simple sentences and manage everyday conversations.
More general information about our courses can be found in the module handbook and the Study and Examination Regulations (not barrier-free).
