German A1 is a language course with 10 lessons designed for Beginner students who have no knowledge of the German language or who want to reinstate the language.

The emphasis on the improvement of oral skills will be considerable, and the student will be required to speak in the second semester on a variety of topics and in a number of questions and answers. Students can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of the needs of a concrete type.
