German I in high school is designed to give students a basic introduction to the four components of learning a world language- speaking, reading, writing, and listening. Since level 1 is at the beginning, no prior knowledge of the language is assumed. We will learn basic conversational vocabulary and phrases and move throughout the year learning how to communicate at the basic level in the German language. Students will learn how to order food in a café, how to shop for clothes, and how to describe themselves and the people they know. Grammar will be learned at a steady pace, for the purpose of furthering communication in the language.
Colleges require a minimum of 2 years of the same language for admissions to college.
