Preparation for Steps In addition to Steps, International Steps, Lake, Tangram Present, Dolphin, Current Topics and other basic level textbooks. Target group: First Steps is an introductory course for course participants who are not used to learning. Driving Latin script is required. Learning objective: The course book provides a careful step-by-step introduction to the German language and prepares you for further work with Extra Steps or other Common Core level textbooks. Concept: First Steps is designed for around 30 learning units. Using additional copy templates (download material on the Internet), the lessons can be expanded individually. Lessons are transparent and divided into manageable units. Simple language structures are developed in four learning steps, so that course participants learn to master simple everyday situations in a varied and clearly structured lesson.
