German I A & B
Two one-semester courses (students must independently register for each semester)
This is a beginning level course that will introduce the student to a variety of areas of language learning. In this course, the student will learn listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills through activities that are based on pedagogically proven methods of foreign language instruction. Starting with five units of study in Semester 1 (Greetings, Calendar, Weather, Time and Colors) and continuing with the following units in Semester 2 ( The City, My Family, Food and Drink, Leisure time, School and Chores), students learn to express themselves using an ever increasing vocabulary, present-tense verbs, articles, and adjectives. Grammar is presented and practiced in innovative and interesting ways with a variety of learning styles in mind.
Culture is sprinkled throughout the course in an attempt to introduce the learner to the German speaking world and their culture, people, geographical locations, and histories.
