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 the Dr. Lehman and requiring 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.
