Class Experience

PREREQUISITE: A1.2 or equivalent Online Placement Exam (recommended score of at least 15 pts on the Stufe 2/A1.2 exam)

Participants work in class to begin developing their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills relating to describing people’s physical appearance and clothing, work around the house, rules and laws, the weather, as well as expressing and understanding basic hypothetical and conditional statements.This course covers chapters 18 - 24 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.


Please purchase the required texts for the course at least 2 weeks before the course start as shipping times are notoriously long.

The class gives me a good chance to review what I have learned on other online platforms. It also allows me to put everything together and speak to someone who can figure out what I am trying to say and provide the proper way to say it.


I'm not sure how to encourage the other students to attempt speaking more. I know it is difficult to do, but it gets easier once you realize you are going to make at least 2 or 3 mistakes per might as well go for it so you can learn what you did wrong.

That the instructor is happy, speaks primarily in German, loves to answer all questions and won't stop until the student is satisfied, really loves teaching and his students.
