St Ives (Cambs)

German Improvers

This group started in September 2014 and since then members have made considerable progress. We worked through BBC Talk German resources initially to give us a basic grounding or revision. We have always used additional resources and are now enjoying reading short stories in German as a way of enlarging our vocabulary, understanding aspects of grammar and hearing and seeing modern German in context, as well as listening to German articles of topical interest. We have also played bingo and other games, sung nursery rhymes, enjoyed role-plays and practised conversations in very small groups. The aim of the group is to keep alive and develop our knowledge of German, and to encourage each other to have a go at understanding and speaking German in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Several of the group have a German family connection so there is a real motivation to improve their German.

Our group currently is of a suitable size to allow everyone to fully participate. However, it may be possible to accept a small number of new members. I need to emphasise though that we can no longer assimilate a complete beginner into the group, and we also require members to have access to the internet.
