Conversational German – From using the Phone to Pastimes and Holidays is an online course which is designed for anyone who wants to gain confidence in speaking German. With 120 million German speakers in over 20 countries this course is the last in a series of conversational German courses that lay down the foundations of the spoken language by introducing learners to the pronunciation of words and the use of phrases and sentences, with English translations, through text and audio.

Additional information about German culture, grammar and verbs is presented to enable you to expand your knowledge of the German language.
