What does the German Refresher course contain?
  • The German Refresher course does not follow a structure defined beforehand. The teacher tailors it to the needs and interests of the participants, and compiles a course programme in line with these at the applicable level for the class.
  • In this course, the focus is on spoken interaction: in different situations, you repeatedly practice communicating fluently. You also expand on important linguistic structures at your language level.
  • Depending on the level, possible topics that may be dealt with in the German Refresher course may be, for example, education and career, shopping, travel, media, nature and the environment as well as other cultures.
