German Basic/Improvers Group 

We are a small friendly group, which at present is on Zoom, as our members prefer it.  From October 2022, we will be meeting in person. This group is suitable for people who have studied German for at least one or two years in the past, or spent time visiting or living in Germany. If you would like to join this group, please contact Rose directly or send an email to basingstokeu3aenquiries@gmail.com and we will forward it on your behalf.  



Current Activity

 In the lessons, we are studying the book “Willkommen”  Book 1, and are now on chapter 7 out of 12 chapters.  


Intermediate

The course is aimed at learning to speak German and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed.


Current Activity

We returned to face-to-face meetings in September 2021. The intermediate class is studying Willkommen Book 2 from the beginning. There is also be plenty of time for conversational practice, mostly based on members’ news and experiences each week. 


Conversation

The group members hold discussions entirely in German, except for the occasional translation. There is no set agenda and no text books are used. Occasionally we agree to talk about a certain topic, otherwise we just talk on anything of interest.


Current Activity

The conversation group returned to face-to-face meetings in September 2021.
