German Beginner Term 3

  • Overview of the course

    more less
    If you're thinking about learning a new language, German could well make an excellent choice. It may not leap to mind as an exciting language to have in your arsenal, but hear us out. While German doesn't have the romantic allure of French, nor is it considered a business asset like Chinese, the language wins hands down once you start considering its other strengths:
    - For the English speaker, German is often surprisingly easy to master.
    - About 40% of German words are similar to their English sounding counterparts.
    - Mastering German will also improve your English.
    So whether you are learning German for travelling, working abroad or at home, this German Beginners course will enable you to communicate confidently on a basic level in everyday situations, including socialising and the world of work.
    This course is aimed at Beginners - for learners with some prior knowledge of the language.
