Dear German language student,
Our Mastering German Conversation series gives students the opportunity to train their conversation skills with our oral drills. Each module focuses on a specific aspect of grammar.
This module focuses on the perfect tense. The perfect tense places action in the past.
The major components of this unit:
- Introduction to 150 of the most commonly used verbs with their past participle forms
- Explanation of when to use the auxiliary verb "haben" and when to use "sein"
- Training vocabulary helpful in and around the office
- Initiating, accepting, and having phone conversations
- Scheduling appointments
After working through the drills, the student will have a good grasp of formulating concepts in the past tense and be able to interact at a basic level when speaking on the phone and scheduling appointments.
Please see our website for the accompanying manuscript of this course as well as demos of the oral drills.
