German is a widely studied foreign language and many students from high schools like Northeast High School and Central High School choose to study it to complete their school language requirements. It is also a popular second language choice for students at the University of Pennsylvania. Knowing German can help you work toward your job hunting, career advancement, and personal goals. These may include traveling in Europe where the language is used not just in Germany, but also in Austria, Switzerland, and many other countries in Central Europe. A Philadelphia German class can be a good place to start your German language studies.

What material will a Philadelphia German course cover?

German grammar will be a constant topic in the course. One striking difference that English speakers notice right away in German grammar is the gender assigned to nouns. Basically, nouns in German have three genders - masculine, feminine, and neuter. There are also gender markers for these three genders, which are "der" for masculine, "die" for feminine, and "das" for neuter.

The course also covers different cases in German. There are four:

  • Nominative - used for sentence subjects
  • Accusative - used for direct objects
  • Dative - used for indirect objects
  • Genitive - used to express possession

Verbs will also be part of the course. There are three types of verbs in German - strong, weak, and mixed. Weak verbs mean they are regular in all tenses and conjugation, while strong verbs are irregular but not necessarily in every conjugation or tense. Mixed verbs are in between the two categories (weak and strong). This topic may seem very challenging, especially if you are just a beginner. Even learners who already have a background in German can have trouble with German verb conjugation. But together with your instructor, you can learn how to properly conjugate German verbs and speak the language with correct grammar.

Besides nouns and verbs, you will also learn pronunciation, singular and plural forms, and essential phrases in your Philadelphia German class.

How will a Philadelphia German course help me learn?

Most students who want to learn a new language look for a formal course they can attend, but they soon realize that going to a traditional class may not be that easy since they can't find a class that fits their schedule. Even if they do find one, commuting may also be a struggle and they may soon lose interest in studying.

A Philadelphia German course with Varsity Tutors is offered entirely online so that students can have a chance to fit their German studies in their busy schedules. Since the course is online, you can study in the comfort of your home and set up your study area where it is most convenient for you. You can even choose weekday courses or evening courses and not have to worry about the time you need to commute back and forth.

The course is conducted in a virtual classroom and students can have live, interactive discussions with their instructor. They will be exposed to High German (the dominant dialect in German schools and media) and can immediately apply what they have learned in class via dialogue practice, writing and grammar exercises, and watching video clips in the target language.

Besides having the opportunity to practice German with other students in the Philadelphia German class, you can also request one-on-one time from your German instructor if you need more help making sense of a topic. This type of private support is available in order for learners to have more avenues in improving their German language skills and to help them to quickly address their core difficulties through personalized and customized attention.
