What is the course about?

Sing your way to better German pronunciation with this fun workshop based on Christmas songs that German people learn as children.

What will we cover?

The workshop will involve learning to sing at least three German Christmas songs whilst working on pronunciation and musicality.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

- sing at least three German Christmas songs
- make sounds that sound more German
- have a better grasp of the rhythms of the German language
- have increased confidence singing in German.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

This course is suitable for learners at all levels and the way the songs are approached will be adjusted to meet the needs of the students present on the day.
You will also need to be able to understand basic spoken and written information in English (e.g. simple instructions, course documents) and be at ease with the use of numbers for daily activities (e.g. using money, telling the time etc).

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

Prounciation and some musical aspects will be introduced and practised. There will be a German language coach as well as a German music tutor. To get the most out of this workshop you will need to come with a wilingness to join in with the singing accompanied by piano.
