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.

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.
