German for beginners (CEFR A1) 2013

Our goal in this class is reaching the A1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

After this class you will be able to:

Understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type.

Introduce yourself and others and be able to ask and answer questions about personal details such as where you live, people you know and things you have.

Interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.

    no lectures added

None, except for a genuine interest in learning German =) and a Google+ account!

Apparently, Google+ does not support more than 10 active speakers - so please keep in mind that I will require regular attendance. If you know that you won't be able to make it to most of the classes, please do not block a vacant space.


We will meet every Saturday 23.30 (11.30 PM), Berlin time! Please look up the corresponding time in your timezone.

Each class will be 90 minutes!

!!! First meeting: 29.06.2013 - 23.30 German time!!!
