Looking to get started with the basics of German?
Take the first step in your journey to fluency with Part 1 of our Beginners Course and we'll take you through level A1.1.
Start understanding everyday expressions and using basic phrases! Among many other things, you’ll learn to introduce yourself and others confidently - and handle simple questions about day-to-day life.
All you need to bring is your course book (see below) and a pen and paper for note-taking.
To start with this level, you are expected to have little to no prior knowledge of German.
Is it the right level for you? You can take the placement test here.
Find out what A1.1 really means just here.
For this course we use Schritte Plus Neu 1. If you would like to get a print copy, you can either buy it at your local bookshop or online. This works best if you are located in Germany as shipping to other countries might take a little longer.
Alternatively, you can opt for the digital version.
