GERMAN II
The prerequisite for this class is German I or an equivalent.

German II students build on what they have learned in German I. We are continuing the story of Thomas, the American exchange student, who has to solve a mystery involving his German girlfriend, Anita.
Based on the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning, the objectives for our German II course are: 
  • Communication: Students engage in conversations about topics such as Typical German - Typical American?, Giving Directions, Birthday, Shopping. They present information on different topics.
  • Cultures: Students gain an understanding of different German cultural practices and products, for example: Polite Forms, Meals, Public Transportation, Money (Euro), Computers and the German phone system.
  • Connections: Students learn about different aspects of German culture which connect to other disciplines, such as history, math and geography.
  • Comparisons: Students learn about language in general and about the concept of culture by comparing German language and culture to their own.
  • Communities: Students use German beyond the school setting by working with the information from selected German websites.
