The Rundblick - beginners' German module from The Open University UK  explores life in German-speaking countries and communities worldwide through topics relevant to adult learners – such as impressions of Germany, Austria and Switzerland: travelling, lifestyles, cultural events, and technology. 

Study resources include printed materials and a dedicated website with a variety of online activities – which support independent learning. Together, they’ll give you not just language skills but a real feel for German-speaking countries and communities too.
