German Advanced Conversation (C1)

This course is a continuation from German Advanced Conversation (B2-C1) and is for students who feel at ease expressing themselves in German and wish to extend and maintain their competency for business, travel or everyday use with approximately 500+ hours of German required. Students will have the opportunity to focus on specific skills, such as extending vocabulary in given areas, improving written language, developing a better understanding of particular cultural and social issues in the target language. The whole class is conducted in German with conversation as the focal point. This course aims to build general advanced comprehension and communication skills in German and a review of cultural practices, with a focus on clear explanation of higher level language principles.

This class will be delivered face-to-face at WEA Sydney. Enrolling students need to ensure they have read the current COVID-19 Safety Guidance that WEA Sydney has put in place before enrolling.
