Course Overview 


Online Introduction to German is a Beginners German course for students who have never studied the German language before. This is a less intensive course than our 6-week Online Level 1 German course, allowing you to ease your way into the language at a slower and more relaxed pace. At the end of the 10-week Online Introduction course, students can then join the Online Level 2 class. If you’re unsure of your level, then take our quick German language level test here or check our levels chart. 


Our Online German language classes take place via Zoom with a qualified, experienced teacher and fellow students. The interactive lessons emulate our face-to-face classes, and via teacher screen-sharing, students are able to experience a live classroom environment. From vocabulary activities and covering grammar points on the white board, to listening exercises, file sharing and ‘break-out rooms’ to practise speaking with classmates, students can learn without leaving the comfort of their homes. Take a look at an example of one of our online classes in this video.
