We all want to live life in the present—but sometimes we need to talk about the past. German 3 is for those who are already confident using the nominative and accusative cases. You’ll also get an intro to the fun stuff: various forms of slang that’ll make you sound like a native.
Level 3 is for those who are fairly comfortable speaking in the present tense, are starting to get more comfortable with the past tense, present perfect and past perfect (Ich kaufte, Ich habe gekauft, Ich hatte gekauft) and are ready to be introduced to the future tense (ich werde kaufen) and the future perfect tense (ich werde gekauft haben). You should also be familiar with the concept of cases and somewhat comfortable using the Nominative, Accustive and Dative case. Level 3 German will solidify your understanding of the three aforementioned cases as well as the Genitive case.
If you are not an absolute beginner, determining what level you are can be really difficult. However, our professors can usually gauge it very quickly after speaking on the phone with you – even if just for a minute or two.
For students who think they may be Level 2 or higher, choose the level that sounds most appropriate for you based on these descriptions and go ahead and sign up for a class. We do an informal placement phone call with all new incoming Level 2 and above students for both you and us to be sure that the level you choose isn’t either too advanced or not advanced enough. If you need to be placed into a different level, we can discuss that when we call for the placement test. We prefer to do this placement call after you sign up online because about 60-70% of students do place themselves accurately.Important:
