Description:  All your knowledge accumulated so far is partly repeated and deepened. In the past, you will now also get to know the so-called 'Mischverben'. The verbs with prepositions will once again be discussed, among other things. Through the 'Konjunktiv II' (adjoining wise) you are able to ask polite questions and formulate (unrealistic) wishes. Furthermore, making the suffering form ('Passiv') plays a role. It talks about time and how you entertain yourself with, among other things, museums, art, reading, watching TV and other media and what your day looks like. In addition to your work and your profession, communication in the working environment (telephone, e-mail) is also an important topic of this course. You will not only speak more fluently and in a more nuanced way, but your own experiences and especially your own opinion will increasingly play an important role.
