Course Summary

German Elementary 3 is a continuation course that focuses on building on the basic grammatical knowledge and key language skills (speaking, writing, reading, and listening) that students acquired in German Elementary 2. The course’s concentration on communication skills allows the students to gain a more complex understanding of German language and culture. The course suits learners who have studied German before, who would like to improve their competence in the language and gain more detailed insights into the culture and customs of German-speaking countries.

This 18-hour course focuses on active competences such as speaking and writing and passive abilities like listening and speaking so that students will be able to understand, communicate and write competently on everyday topics, such as:

  • Jobs and Professions and talking about aspects of one’s working life
