Textbook Based Classes

Our textbook-based Adult Classes are working with a tried-and-true methodology for consistent progressions: Clearly structured, learner friendly presentation and structure; interconnected vocabulary, grammar, and phrases for sustainable language learning; mediated strategies that are key to independent language production; contemporary Bildsprache that students can relate to with modern, authentic texts; engaging and diverse activities for meaningful interaction; integrated culture throughout.

Please note that class offerings are subject to change, depending on enrollment. For most classes the minimum enrollment is 6 students, the maximum is 12 students.

Special Interest Classes

B2+ Deutsch Aktuell

Der Schwerpunkt dieser Klasse liegt bei “Themen des Tages”, Artikel über aktuelle Themen und Ereignisse in Deutschland. Diese Artikel sind manchmal direkt aus dem Internet, manchmal verkürzt und vereinfacht. Der kulturelle und gesellschaftliche Kontext wird erläutert und diskutiert. Die Teilnehmer werden aufgefordert zu lesen, fragen, antworten und diskutieren. Neue Wörter und Ausdrücke werden erklärt und dann geübt. Manchmal ergibt sich eine Erklärung der Grammatik anhand der gegebenen Beispiele, was gelegentlich zu einer ausführlichen Übung führt. Zusätzlich gibt es eine Lektüre, z.B. eine Biografie oder eine Kurzgeschichte, die zum Sprechen und Gedankenaustausch anregt.
