Intermediate High 1

Intermediate High 1

Learners in this class have been exposed to most high-frequency structural patterns in German (for example, by taking courses at the B2 levels, or LALIA’s IM levels). At the IH levels (former IM+), learners can perform all the functions of the Intermediate (see 1ST YEAR: INTERMEDIATE) with more ease, confidence and accuracy. The conversations in class go beyond the immediate inner world of the student. We will discuss news, films, and short literary texts. Classes take place three times a weekwith each session lasting 70 minutes. Although speaking is still the focus of this class, reading and writing play a more significant role than in previous levels. This is an online course.

Advanced: Mythos Berlin

Advanced: Mythos Berlin

In Berlin gibt es vieles doppelt. Die Stadt besitzt zwei Zoos, zwei Funktürme und mittlerweile auch wieder zwei Stadtschlösser. Der Grund dafür ist eine bewegte Geschichte und die Teilung der Stadt in der Zeit des Kalten Krieges. Vielfalt und Widersprüchlichkeit prägen das Stadtbild bis heute. Im Kurs wollen wir das alte und neue Berlin erkunden. Wir beschäftigen uns mit Kunst, Architektur, Musik, Film, Theater, Literatur, aber auch mit Phänomenen der Subkultur und Stadtpolitik.
