German 5 students might need a quick grammar refresher here and there, but are comfortable having a simple and basic conversation in German. They can speak with some fluidity, even if they are still making a lot of mistakes. Increasing listening comprehension is a major component of an Intermediate class with the goal in mind of moving towards being able to listen to the radio and watch television or full-length movies with no subtitles.
This class is extremely focused on conversation skills with quick grammar reviews and lessons built in based on the level of each member of the class. In terms of conversation practice, a lot of time will be devoted to increasing your ability to give and defend your opinion and respond to current events in German.
Because the teacher isn't tied down to a rigid curriculum, this 20-hour class is meant to be taken many times. Unlike Levels 1-4 that "build" on each other (and usually don't require repeating), this class is designed as to allow a student to take a 20-hour German 5 class up to 10 times, for a total of 200 hours!
