German Intermediate
We use the course book Schritte Plus Neu 5 B1.1 (Huber Verlag).

This course is a continuation from the last academic year. We start with Unit 4 and study contemporary everyday topics and lifestyles. In terms of grammar, we study the Subjunctive with “wenn” clauses and the Genitive. Lessons are supplemented with news headlines and there are lots of opportunities for lively and engaging discussions of topics of interest in pairs/groups in the breakout rooms.

We learn by listening to and repeating new words and phrases, reading texts, doing a variety of paired work activities, and practising new language in role play situations.

The term builds on prior knowledge enabling greater fluency of the topics. All four skills continue to be developed.

Learning aims and outcomes:

- Develops languages skills at B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR)
- 7 learning units in total but we start with Unit 4
- Extensive grammar sections and word glossary
- Lively and contemporary themes
- Comprehensive coverage of key grammar and vocabulary - for communicating in a range of common conversational settings
- Range of activities based on authentic materials - to see everyday German in context
- CD and integrated workbook - which contain all the conversations and listening activities from the coursebook
