German for beginners 10 weeks
24th March 6-8pm or 25th March 6-8pm
£63The tutor’s approach to these courses is fairly flexible as she needs to be able to respond to the learners who come but they always start at the beginning and cover topics of use and interest. They don’t follow any particular book but the tutor draws from the BBC Talk German coursebook, Willkommen 1:German by Paul Coggle and Heiner Schenke and web resources appropriate for German learners. She pulls everything together before each lesson and distributes handouts the night before so that everyone has a fair copy of new vocab and structures. She is always happy to respond to any queries that come up, clear up confusion and explain something again. She says, “I’m so grateful for everything that learning German as an additional language has brought me and my main aim in the classes is to share that with you as far as I can.”
