The German Beginners have been going since January 2011, and now feel we qualify for a “Plus” rating. We meet in members’ homes (usually the convenor’s) on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Wednesdays of the month.
We are gradually working our way through the BBC Active DeutschPlus – book and CD. Described as “a multi-media course for beginners learning German”.
Our group is of mixed ability. Three of us are complete beginners three, I believe, learnt German at school and are refreshing their memories and two worked in Germany and are acting as our mentors.
Wednesday mornings are enjoyable learning and improving together but hard work for those of us with no knowledge.
