German 2 is a continuation of the skills we began building in German 1. We take the basic building blocks from level 1, where we learned to introduce ourselves and carry on basic conversation, and branch out to talk about things in the past, present, and future. We will learn about travel, restaurants, leisure activities, and sports in Germany, all while expanding our command of the language and having a lot of fun.
Teacher: David Lovin

Honors German IV builds upon the advanced skills learned in German III. This course includes advanced vocabulary, parts of speech, grammar, and pronunciation. It also focuses on essay writing, conversation, idioms, and advanced class discussions. An emphasis is placed on German culture, including literature and history.
