Intensive Introduction (suitable for beginner to intermediate students)

Here in China’s most international city, more and more people are entering into the fascinating study of the German language in order to converse with friends and colleagues. This course focuses on teaching the basic structure and correct pronunciation of practical phrases and expressions to get you conversing as quickly as possible. We will employ the most-current linguistic theory, emphasizing active communication over more-conventional text-based learning, grammar drills, etc., providing you with the skills to communicate easily and effectively in any situation. Instruction will take place in English and of course German, with a higher percentage of the time speaking German as the course progresses. You will be guided through a variety of communication activities leading from structured practice to free expression, while gaining helpful insights into German culture and society. There will be ample opportunity to practice your newly acquired vocabulary and grammar structures in small and large-group activities which simulate real-life situations and offer intensive practice in the everyday use of the language. This course offers a pragmatic approach similar to immersing yourself in a new culture. Come and experience the passion of German in a fun and supportive environment.
