These new online classrooms for language levels A2/B1 and B2/C1 are designed to help exam preparation, revision and consolidation of knowledge for high school students. The content is based on key areas of the German curricula in all Australian states. Topics vary from My Personal Identity to Leisure, from Health & Nutrition to Future & Technology. Each online tutorial offers a variety of exercises and tasks to improve skills. They also include different types of text, grammar revision, as well as learning tips, vocabulary and key phrases for writing and speaking.
In 10 tutorials students will gain a broader and deeper understanding of the German language and extend and refine their communication, linguistic and intercultural skills. Students can independently revise the major themes, text types and grammar topics. The tutorials are intended to take between 60 and 180 minutes, depending on the activities and the student’s individual knowledge and learning speed. A typical tutorial includes a mix of listening and reading comprehension, audio-visual exercises, as well as written and oral tasks. Students will receive instant feedback on quizzes and can discuss and interact online with fellow classmates through forums and blog entries. Each tutorial finishes with an interview task which focusses in particular on the oral exam.
