Course 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! :)

  • One free finger to click, an open mind, willingness to learn and a sense of humor

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Interact in everyday situations (eating out, traveling, asking for help, expressing your thoughts) with the help of the Modal verbs

  • Have fun watching my silly "animations" :)

Instructor Biography

Eleven Percent, 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 :)
