The A1 courses are for those who are looking to learn German from the beginning in a formal setting. Students are in an immersion setting from the very first class in A1.1; all courses are conducted primarily in German. The 3 courses cover the Menschen A1 coursebook. The content covered in the class is supplemented by a workbook, which students complete independently outside of class to review and practice what's explored in class. Note that these are German-language textbooks.
Those who fully participate in and complete A1.1, A1.2, and A1.3, typically over the span of 3 semesters, will ideally be prepared for the A1 Goethe Exam, recognized globally as proof of German language ability.

Please purchase the required texts for the course at least 2 weeks before the course start as shipping times are notoriously long.
You will receive an email 30 minutes before class starts with a link to the class and access instructions.
