This is a course for complete beginners who have never learned German before.

You will develop basic communication skills in everyday contexts. The main focus of the course is on speaking and listening skills but you will also get practice in reading and writing.

All courses are sub-divided into Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3, each phase corresponding to one term of the academic year. 

The courses are progressive and, while students are welcome to enrol at any of the three starting points, they are advised to contact the college for information on topics already covered in the previous phase(s) before doing so.

Our career pathways show you a typical route through the various stages of learning, what you will learn along the way and the careers these programmes could lead onto.
