Description

Learn everything you ever wanted (or didn`t want) to know about the German modal verbs - who they are, what do they usually do, who their friends are and what do they do together (and even a dark secret about their personality).

Then take this knowledge to the real life section - and use it however you want! You will see that the modal verbs are really useful in your everyday conversations, and that by knowing them, your speaking and writing skills will greatly improve.

The course isn`t long, so why don`t you try it :)

After the course, if you still have any questions, comments, things that confuse you, something you want to talk about, or just share your opinion about some amazing German beer you just tried, feel free to drop me a note! :)

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is aimed for the ones stuck somewhere between the "total beginner" and the "not even close to intermediate" stage
  • It can also be useful to total newbies, since all German in the course is translated into English, and everything is explained from the beginning

German language skipper

I am Sandra, a teacher of German as a foreign language, trying to make it not so foreign anymore to a wide range of students. In the last three years, I have taught elementary and high school students as well as adults, from beginner courses to advanced and business courses.

My greatest hope is to make learning as fun and pleasurable as playing your favorite game and as easy as chatting with your best friend. I know it can be done and I am still exploring all the possible ways to achieve this :)
