  • starts August 22, 2022 CAN 97/person Registration deadline: August 21, 2022 This online programme will help you learn German playfully and practically to feel confident when you communicate with German speakers, whether in your circle of family and friends or during your vacation. The person across from you doesn’t care if you use the correct word or grammar but how you connect. The purpose of learning a language is to communicate. At the end of the course, you can introduce yourself, ask questions to get to know a person you meet and answer those questions. For five weeks, participants will receive a new module every Monday. At the end of each week, we will will meet for a one-hour session to practice, ask questions about the content and give feedback. The live classes are on Zoom on Thursday, August 25 at 1 pm, Friday, September 2 at 1 pm (due to a doctor's appointment on Thursday), Thursdays, September 8, 15 and 22 at 1 pm. Provided Materials:
