GERMAN AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE
A2 – Basic Course II
This course builds on the A1 course and helps students perform tasks independently.
Students already have basic language skills, which are reinforced by coping with everyday situations on their own. It takes experiences and life situations and broadens and extends these using grammatical structures. The past and subjunctive tenses are also introduced, along with all the common declensions and more complex sentence structures.
Topics such as family, celebrations, housing, food and drink, clothing, health, travel, careers and the workplace are covered in detail and tailored to the needs of individual students. Our German teaching is based on the 'Netzwerk Deutsch als Fremdsprache A2' textbook, which gently introduces the German language in an educational way, as specified by the European Reference Framework.
Furthermore, increasingly authentic texts are also used in the German lessons, including newspaper articles, audio excerpts and video clips. In partners and groups, students learn to communicate freely and confidently, gather information and write their own texts. At the end of this German course, students can sit a final exam in order to reflect on their learning and consolidate their progress. They also have the opportunity to take an internationally recognised telc A2 exam with us.
At the end of this level, you have a basic knowledge of German. You can understand and apply sentences and frequently used expressions associated with all areas of everyday life
