Registration guide information
German I covers the basic vocabulary, grammar, speaking, and listening skills necessary for simple, functional communication. The student also reads and writes simple texts, and explores culture and contemporary life through a multicultural based program providing creative activities within authentic contexts.
German II continues the program from Level I of vocabulary, grammar, speaking, and listening skills. The content encourages proficiency in conversational skills. The student reads and writes more material than in Level I and continues to explore culture and contemporary life.
German III is designed to increase the studentís knowledge of vocabulary and to complete most of the grammar study. The student becomes more at ease with understanding and speaking the normal speech of everyday German. He/she reads longer, more advanced selections and writes short creative and/or expository themes. The student will study the cultural patterns of daily living, as well as topics concerning arts and sciences.
German IV continues to stress vocabulary and idioms with emphasis on listening and conversation. The student completes the grammatical content of the language and reviews important grammatical items taught in Levels I through III. The student reads and writes more complicated material using cultural topics as sources.
The Advanced Placement Program in German Language is intended for those who have chosen to develop their proficiency in all four language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The course covers the equivalent of a third-year college course in advanced German writing and conversation. It encompasses aural/oral skills, reading comprehension, grammar, and composition. Course content might include intellectual interests shared by the students and teacher (the arts, history, current events, literature, culture, sports, etc.). Materials may include recordings, films, newspapers, and magazines. The course seeks to develop language skills that are useful in themselves and that can be applied to various activities and disciplines rather than to the mastery of any specific subject matter. Extensive training in the organization and writing of compositions must be an integral part of the Advanced Placement German Language Course. Students who choose this program should have a basic knowledge of the language and culture of German-speaking peoples and should have attained a reasonable proficiency in listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing.
AP German is sometimes called German 5.
