Deutsch für Anfänger : German for Beginners

German Castle


6 week Online Course
September 4 - October 15, 2019
Cost: $79.00

Deutsch für Anfänger is a self-contained, online (asynchronous), conversation-based beginning German course designed for adults and built around high-quality, original, electronic materials designed by course instructor Dr. Will Lehman and requires no extra purchase. Topics to be covered include: formal and informal introductions, talking about origins and home towns, shopping, traveling, eating, clothing and colors, the weather, family life, marriage, hobbies, and more. Although students will generally be discovering German and practicing grammar individually through the online system, there will be optional bi-weekly opportunities for conversation practice with the instructor and other students through live video technology.


Dr. Will Lehman teaches all levels of German--and sometimes Spanish--at WCU. He is himself an avid traveler and language learner and has also taken classes in Dutch, Hebrew, and Cherokee. He is currently learning Mandarin, for which he has taken courses in the US and in China. Every summer he takes a group of WCU students to his "zweite Heimat" (home away from home) in Stuttgart, Germany.
