What is the difference between our A2-W and A2-C classes?
In A2, our course program gives you two options, both covered by the Continuing Education Fund: A2-C or A2-W. In both streams, you learn the same grammar, but you cover different topics. Both streams will lead you to the Start Deutsch 2 diplomas.
A2-W is for students
who work, or want to work, in a German company
who have German speaking customers
who are generally interested in topics related to work
In January 2006, we introduce a new book, specially written for A2 in Hong Kong:
A2-1W: Getting along in a German company - meeting new colleagues / first small talk with customers / getting familiar with departments and positions
A2-2W: Getting to know a company from the inside - organisation / responsibilities / working time / income / applying for a job
A2-3W: Presenting a company to outsiders - presenting your own company, and a famous German company
A2-4W: Working on a trade fair - presenting products to customers / inquiries about products / information about trade fairs
A2-C is for students
who want to continue with the studio d program
who are interested in topics related to family and everyday life
who are generally interested to learn more about culture and life in the German speaking countries
We will continue working with the course book studio d A2:
A2-1C: Languages and personal language learning experiences; Family and family celebrations, Travel for personal and business purposes
A2-2C: Leisure activities and associations, Modern means of information and communication, Recreational life after work
A2-3C: At home: to find a place and move house, Art and culture, Work life: professional education and service
A2-4C: Festivals and national holidays, Emotions and personal perception, innovations and inventions
So here are your options after A1-4:
Choose A2-C or A2-W and go straight to the Start Deutsch 2 examination.
Do A2-C and A2-W at the same time (if you want to progress fast).
Complete one stream first and then go through the other complete stream.
Complete one stream first, then go to the other stream for one or two terms only (if you are interested in their specific topics).
