Middle School: Mittelstufe - Advanced German required.
While we still are focusing on grammar and vocabulary expansion, students now are starting to write their own short essays on relevant topics of their choice. Emphasis is toward developing independent writing and communication skills. Students will prepare short presentations and discuss them with their teachers and classmates. These are crucial steps for preparing for the national language exams (AATG) as well as the Sprachdiplom A1 and A2.
Middle School: Deutsch II - Good Understanding of German
This German course for older elementary and middle school students requires some prior knowledge of the German language. We emphasize comprehension that includes building grammar and conversation skills related to everyday topics such as the family, sports, shopping, daily routines and life in Germany. Multimedia is an important teaching tool for this age group.
Students will prepare for the A1 Exam of the Deutsche Sprachdiplom.
