Your grammar topics at level B1.1
Of course there is not only vocabulary in the German language. That’s why in this part of the course we also deal with new grammar topics and deepen those you’ve already learned.

In order to really consolidate your German grammar, we try to explain all topics in a comprehensible way and show you how to use them in practice.
