This is an online course delivered using Zoom, in real time with live interaction with your tutor and fellow learners
Do you want to be able to use your German in a range of real life situations? Exchanging face to face with your tutor and other students will give you the opportunity to practice speaking in German with other learners to develop your language skills further at Intermediate level.
Successful students will be able to:
• Describe (people, places, situations, events etc) using the present, past or future tense
• Give and follow specific instructions
• Express an opinion and ideas in taking part in discussion
• Make comparisons
• Express an opinion
• Listen and respond to information from a range of sources (telephone messages, news headlines/public announcements, instructions, conversations)
• Deal with emergencies, problems and complaints
Grammar will be expanded. You will learn to use expressions and forms appropriate to the language using present, future and some past tenses. You will be given small amounts of homework (1 hour max) each week to reinforce classroom learning.
There is limited parking on site, but there is a public car park nearby and on-street parking.
How will I be taught?
The focus will be on speaking and listening. Some reading and writing will also be included. Pronunciation and German culture are an integral part of the course. The course will be conducted mainly in the foreign language. Learners will work through different activities individually, in pairs and in small groups, using a variety of learning methods and resources (ex role-play and games). Homework set will provide an opportunity for self-study to reinforce learning.
Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. You will record your starting point on your Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and set targets. You will revisit regularly during the course to monitor and record your progress. Tutors will feedback orally on homework.
What do I need to have with me?
The course book will be discussed at the first session if appropriate. Students will need to bring a pen and paper and an A4 ring binder for handouts, although we advise students not to buy anything until after the first session.
What can I do next?
There is a short “Intermediate - Summer School” to follow-up and reinforce learning. After this, the next appropriate follow-on course is an Intermediate Plus course. The tutor will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
What do I need to join the course
For anybody who is looking to improve the practical speaking and listening skills needed to cope with a range of real life situations at Intermediate Level.
This course follows on from our German Intermediate as it can take several years to achieve level A2. Students need to either have completed one of our Beginners Plus or Intermediate courses or have studied GCSE (D/E grades) or have studied the language for approximately 100 hours and who can express themselves and understand simple information relating to personal, work or social matters.
If you are unsure carry out our self-assessment test available on www.kentadulteducation.co.uk. The assessment provides a score to help you chose the best course for you. If still unsure, speak to us or to a Curriculum Leader.
