Beginning German #1 Language Classes

The Edelweiss Club is pleased to bring you another opportunity to attend Beginning German
Language classes. Classes will focus on learning new phrases and applying these new phrases to
various real-life situations. The instructor will aim to strike a balance between some grammar
instruction and lots of practice with listening, speaking, and interacting. Classes will cover
topics such as greetings and introductions, getting to know someone, prices and shopping,
telling time and making dates/appointments, and eating at restaurants. No previous
experience with the German language is required. This is your chance to learn some functional
German before your trip to Germany, Austria, Switzerland, or Liechtenstein!
