This language course provides students with a sound foundation in German (grammar and vocabulary). It enables students to understand the gist of authentic written and spoken German and to speak and write about familiar topics with a degree of accuracy and fluency.
No previous knowledge of German is required, but this course is also for students which took German at school before, on any level lower than Higher or A-level.
With 3 Language Classes and 1 Language Practical per week this course encourages and supports students to develop their personal self-study strategies.

This course provides an intensive introduction to the German language for students with little or no previous knowledge of German, or with qualifications below the entry requirement for GM 1050. It concentrates on the four basic language skills: reading, writing, speaking, listening comprehension. Students attend formal language classes for the introduction of German grammar, and a weekly tutorial in smaller groups, focusing on spoken German. Students are also required to pursue an intensive course of private study and to submit regular written work. The course may be taken alone as a pure language course, or in combination with GM 1049 - Background to German Beginners, and can lead on to a Honours degree in German.
