he focus will be on oral communication (speaking and listening) and 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 (role-play and games etc).

This will be revisited from time to time during the course to monitor and record progress. Tutors will mark homework and give written or verbal feedback.
