Our course book series "Auf jeden Fall!"

Deutsch A1-B1, you will be able to provide your students with solid German language skills at elementary level as well as prepare them for higher levels. Thanks to its rapid progression, Auf jeden Fall! quickly establishes a solid language foundation for motivated learners. Even at a lower language level, learners practise expressing and justifying their opinions in German with simple sentences. This trains their ability to engage in discourse. 

In everyday life, work and studies, it is often necessary to combine skills and summarise what has been heard or read in a brief written or oral form. Auf jeden Fall! promotes these skills and linguistically prepares learners for professional or academic life. The course books also specifically teach learning strategies to comprehend unfamiliar vocabulary and challenging (listening) texts—all of this through exciting topics that spark enthusiasm for the German language and learning!
