German Lower Intermediate Part 2 Course overview
Part 2 will cover practical topics of conversation, such as describing Berlin and its attractions or planning a weekend break. You’ll build knowledge of culinary trends and eating out in Germany – ideal for jetting off for a long weekend or visiting relatives.
We introduce you to the genitive case, changing prepositions and adjective endings to improve your grammar.
Our class sizes are small, making them a great way to meet other like-minded people who share your love of the language.
Part 2 is the second of three lower intermediate modules leading towards competency at CEFR A2/B1 level for languages.
Who is it for?
We ask that you can already communicate at CEFR A1/2 level or have studied German for at least 80 hours formally. It is the next step after completing part 1 of the lower intermediate syllabus or if you have a rusty GCSE. Check the eligibility section.
