Why take this course?
You have a basic understanding of German, but feel you can’t progress much further without conversation and interaction. This intermediate level course is perfect for those with some knowledge of the language (perhaps those who have completed a beginners level course) that wish to build on their existing vocabulary, spoken and written skills. The course aims to give you the confidence to hold a conversation in German.
What you will experience
This course is still at a basic level, but is the perfect way to brush up on your spoken and written skills and to use your existing knowledge of German to push you to the next level.
You will gain a firm grasp of the German language in a safe and fun learning environment, through conversation and written work. By the end of the course you should confidently be able to:
- Talk about past events (where you have been on holiday)
- Ask questions (open and closed)
- Talk about your plans or future events
- Talk about the weather
- Describing briefly your daily routines, talking about dates and times, talking about your hobbies and interests.
Everything you need to know before booking this course.

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
“NESCol is a huge family and everyone is there to help you – there’s a solution to any problem and answers to all of your questions. When I started I thought it would be simple because I knew some English and speak Latvian, Russian as well as German in the past – but it wasn’t easy! ESOL gave me self-confidence because I could express my thoughts more clearly. It was a great start and gave me a push to go on and study further and go on to university and follow my passion for law, which I hadn’t planned when I started at College.”
