  • Categories IB


This language acquisition course is especially designed for students with little or no previous experience in German. Aimed at helping students develop the ability to communicate in German, this course fosters their receptive, productive and interactive skills in both familiar and unfamiliar contexts. This syllabus ensures that students become familiar with a variety of different linguistic registers and text types. The language skills are practised within the context of themes and topics – such as communication and media, global issues and social relationships.

1:1 and Group Classes

We teach a hybrid model of solo and regular timetabled group classes (currently online). We assess the individual needs of every student and, partnering with parents, mutually decide on an appropriate course of study for the student. Our general recommendation is that students start their learning in a group class and once core theory has been understood, group sessions can be complemented with solo classes to consolidate learning and address any specific concerns.

Paper Marking

We also offer paper marking services for this course. Having your practice papers marked will help give you a clear idea of where and how to improve. Please click here to know more.
