    Hi,

    Firstly, I hope this qualifies as it's own thread - I can add it to the general outside-courses one if the administrators want, but the question is quite specific.

    The Path description for German 1A, the course designed to take beginners to A-Level standard in one year, is very doom and gloom about how difficult it is. It says you need a lot of serious study, and highlights that it focuses hugely on grammar, etc. Is this just to frighten off the people who think it's a side course, similar to the short courses, or is it actually extremely difficult? I'm not trying to get out of the 'serious study' part, (that is what I'm paying my £9,000 pounds for, anyway!), I just don't want to bite off more than I can chew.

    In comparison, does anyone know how vigourous the short German courses are? They seem extremely basic, but would it be advisable to do an easier outside course and a short course in German, with no risk of failing?

    Thanks guys!!
