Free online learning platform, Alison has launched a new Diploma in Basic German Language Studies.
The diploma, which went live this week, will be of great interest to business people who have regular contact with German colleagues or any learner who has an interest in speaking or reading German. An estimated 120 million people speak German worldwide in over 20 different countries.
The course uses text and audio to introduce learners to the pronunciation of words and the correct use of key phrases. Learners will discover how to reserve a table, order food and ask for and pay a bill. They will learn how to tell someone where they are from and ask where others are from. After completing the diploma, they will also be able to describe their family and profession and discuss weekend plans.
Alison already offers free online courses in Arabic, Spanish, French, English, Swedish, Irish, and Chinese.
