Class Experience

PREREQUISITE: A1.1 or equivalent Online Placement Exam (recommended score of at least 15 pts on the Stufe 1/A1.1 exam)

Participants work in class to begin developing their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills relating to their daily and weekly activities; providing and understanding simple accounts of past events; talking about celebrations, festival, and holidays; describing living situations; giving directions, scheduling appointments, and talking about life plans and wishes.This course covers chapters 10 - 18 of the Menschen A1 course book.

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. Read more here about the Goethe Institute and their language exams.

Mr. Barr always keeps the class on topic, well paced, and interesting.


I think under the circumstances we have all been experiencing, the class has been conducted extremely well.

Getting to practice speaking and hearing German. It was reassuring to know the difficulties others were having in speaking the language during class.

Online lessons are super hard. The teacher-student connection is not the same.
