Online Video Course For Advanced German Learners
Whether you're an outer space buff who wants to be able to discuss the universe in German, or a language enthusiast looking to improve and expand your German vocabulary, this self-paced online video course has a lot to offer to all advanced German language learners!
What Does This Course Entail?
This course has been designed specifically for advanced level German learners to become comfortable in reading or holding dialogues - this means that advanced knowledge of the German language (basic grammar, etc.) is expected and will not be covered in this course. The lessons take a balanced, well-rounded approach to expanding a learner's knowledge of the language (within the context of outer space). The course encourages and reinforces knowledge through a series of exercises and fun video lectures that enable learners to:
1. Understand Spoken German:
The video lectures included in the course allow learners to familiarize themselves with the pronunciation. This allows learners to comfortably listen to and understand both formal and informal dialogues.
In order to test their understanding of spoken German, learners are encouraged to take a listening exercise included in the course.
2. Read "The little prince" In German:
The course also includes reading exercises with the book “The little prince” a young guy coming from outer space; these exercises can help learners to test and solidify their German comprehension skills.
A new German translation of the famous book has been published online by the entitled person of the translation. He agreed to make use of it for this German course.
Anyone taking this course may read it online for FREE.
3. Become Familiar With Advanced German Grammar:
This is great for anyone interested in polishing up or revisiting their basic German grammar, while at the same time taking on the challenge to learn something new in the process!
Why Outer Space?
You don't have to be a “space geek” to be able to appreciate the wonders of the universe, or to find yourself engaged in a dialogue that somehow relates to the topic! You'd be surprised at just how many times you're likely to find some reference to space in German literature, cinema and media. Whether you're listening/talking/reading about science education, Sci-Fi films, NASA's environmental research, the Earth's dwindling natural resources, or even reading a philosophical piece that draws metaphors from outer space, knowing your planets and some basic space information can definitely come in handy (even in everyday life situations!).
Apart from being a useful area to broaden your German vocabulary in, outer space is also an incredibly fun topic to talk and learn about!
native German teacher
I'm a native German speaker from Germany. I started teaching German 2014.Since then I've tought hundreds of students live and online. I'm also a telc certified expert in foreign language didactics and I've learned 3 foreign languages myself (English, Spanish, French)
I have been living in 5 different countries and learned so much about life and the world.
I also met incredible people who inspired me.
However, I never stop learning something new.
I share some of my gained knowledge here on udemy and hope to make an impact on the world. I hope that my course will still be there when I'm gone.
