German on Saturdays 2022

German on Saturdays 2022

This ongoing and progressive B2.2 level program is aimed at students with intermediate German language skills equivalent to the completion of level B2.1 within the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) or above. Students in this popular program are expected to continue working towards the completion of the equivalent of level B2 for all of 2022 (and beyond).

Being a mix of carefully selected conversational practice, reading and writing exercises, grammar as well as Landeskunde (cultural studies), this course is designed to give students the opportunity to enhance their German language and cultural skills in a fun and relaxed classroom atmosphere.

For one of this semester's Saturdays during springtime, as a special treat, this program is scheduled to also include a full-day, catered German Barossa Heritage Bus Tour with professional German-Australian Genealogist & Historian Ben Hollister, which is set to explore the various migrations of Germanic and Wendish peoples to South Australia's Barossa Valley. 

Following their paths (in a bus, not a wagon), and with commentary from letters and diaries as well as through images, maps and plans along the way, main places visited will be Klemzig, Lobethal Archives, Herbig Family Tree, Barossa Sculpture Park, Lührs Cottage, Barossa Museum & Bethany Strassendorf.
