DescriptionThe aim of this course is to use language that students have learnt before in a broader context. Topics from German current life will offer them the opportunity to deal with authentic social situations.
Students will practise and communicate in a safe environment to build their confidence. We will also endeavour to contact through the new media “real people" and so in real-time, to learn about culture in German families. (for example via Skype)
The course is for students who have studied German for 2 or 3 years (B1.1-B1.2, equivalent).
