What does German Online for Teens include?

The course German Online for Teens is divided into chapters that cover current and everyday topics and teach you the vocabulary and grammar you need to understand them. 

The participants will study along with a wide range of exercises, e.g. videos, images, audio files, reading texts and cloze texts both alone and in groups. They will also work on exercises to be submitted to their teacher (e.g. longer writing tasks), which will then be checked and sent back with detailed, individual feedback. This is how the learners practice listening, reading and writing. Speaking will be practiced specifically in the live sessions. 

In case of questions, the participants can exchange ideas via the forum or contact their teacher by email. 

All course material is provided digitally and is included in the course price.
