How does Deutsch Online Individual work?
Your online course is divided into various chapters that are devoted to everyday topics such as “Out and about in the city” and “Everyday interactions” at language level A1. In each chapter you will encounter typical conversational situations, full of interesting information, and practice using the correct vocabulary and grammatical structures. You learn and practice using different formats such as reading texts, matching exercises, short films, writing and speaking exercises and much more. This leads to rapid progress through more diverse and enjoyable learning.
In addition, you will arrange a time with your online teacher to meet in two live sessions online per course for communication and speaking practice. You will practice speaking German freely and train your feeling for the language.
Your online tutor will oversee your learning process via e-mail. This includes corrections and feedback to your written and verbal contributions, as well as answering your questions regarding the learning content. In this manner we can optimally support your self-learning progress.
