Junior Course overview

The German lessons are tailor made for juniors and are aimed at helping young students quickly pick up the German language in fun and collaborative lessons. Much of the emphasis is on spoken German. There is a lot of encouragement and assistance given and the aim is for students to feel confident and comfortable and at ease with the learning process. 

The course also covers the four fundamentals of language - listening, writing, reading and speaking. Teachers actively encourage ‘free’ class discussions, role-playing and interactive conversation all of which help students in their overall learning process.
