Certificate in German (Introductory) is available in one 120-hour programme or two 60-hour programmes (Part 1 and Part 2). After completion of both Part 1 and Part 2, the level will be equivalent to the HKU SPACE "Certificate in German (Introductory)" programme. The programme is equivalent to A1 level in the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).

Class arrangement during COVID-19
The COVID-19 situation may still be fluid and constantly affect class arrangements in the coming months. The health and safety of our students will always be our top priority. To ensure that students’ academic progress is not affected, the School may substitute face-to-face classes with online teaching if necessary in the event that face-to-face classes cannot be held. Our respective Programme Teams will contact the students concerned with details of such arrangements as necessary.

The programme is aimed at students with no previous or little knowledge of the language. It covers a range of everyday topics and situations and includes a balance of all four skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing), as well as practice on key grammar points, vocabulary and pronunciation relevant to the level. By the end of the programme, students should be able to understand and use basic everyday phrases to introduce themselves, ask and answer questions about personal details. They will also learn language to deal with everyday situations like shopping, eating out, talking about their jobs, families and interests.
