Introduction:

Learning a foreign language is a wonderful opportunity to not only learn the language itself, but also to reveal different perspectives on life, enabling you to explore new cultures through a different lens.

Our courses are more than just engaging classroom sessions supported by excellent online resources.

You’ll also have the option to take assessments and be awarded a Nottingham Trent University (NTU) Language Programme Certificate of Achievement.

If you continue to study with us, you may become eligible for a Certificate of Language Learning or Diploma of Language Learning (or the UNILANG Certificate).

You can find more details about these awards at www.ntu.ac.uk/ulp

What you’ll study

German stage 1

This course is suitable for real beginner learners of German with virtually no prior knowledge of the language.

During the course you’ll learn how to talk about basic personal details, and your work or studies. You’ll learn how to talk about daily routines and how to make appointments.

At the end of the course, you’ll have some elementary appreciation of German grammar and structures and you’ll be able to give basic information about yourself and ask for directions.

You’ll also be able to communicate at a basic level when shopping and when you are in restaurants and in hotels.

German stage 2

This course is suitable for beginner learners of German with some knowledge of the language, equivalent to stage 1 (for example GCSE grade B or C).

During the course you’ll learn about life in Germany, life in the city, and how to talk about your holidays.

At the end of the course, you’ll have deepened your appreciation of German grammar and structures at an elementary level and you’ll be able to make comparisons, and talk about recent events and the past.

German stage 3

German stage 3 is the right stage for you if you have successfully completed German stage 2 or equivalent (e.g. GCSE grade A).

Typically, during the course you’ll study topics relating to the media, travel, climate and working abroad.

At the end of the course, you’ll be able to express your enthusiasm for, or (dis)satisfaction with, for example your work and your routines while abroad.

German stage 4

German stage 4 is the right stage for you if you have successfully completed German stage 3 or equivalent (e.g. A level grade D or E).

During the course you’ll study topics relating to, for example, fitness, entertainment and ideal accommodation.

At the end of the course, you’ll be able to talk about your intentions and wishes, events in the past, and have looked at job applications.

German stages 5 and 6

Topic areas typically include the news, food and body consciousness. During the course you will also study topics relating to your own interests.

At the end of the course, you will be able, for example, to summarise extended written and spoken texts, as well as discuss and debate complex ideas.

German stage 7

German stage 7 is the right stage for you if you have successfully completed German stage 6 or equivalent (e.g. an A level German plus at least one further year of study or in-country experience of the language or equivalent).

Applicants for stage 7 must have prior permission from the tutor, course administrator or have completed the module successfully in the past.
