Prerequisite: German I. German I does not necessarily have to be taken with Mrs. Cruz. This German II class begins with a short review of the grammar learned in German I then quickly moves on to more advanced grammar. This course will enrich your vocabulary and teach complex sentence formulation, simple past tense, past perfect tense, adverbs, accusative, dative and genitive cases, coordinating conjunctions, prepositions, and imperative. The weekly live class sessions focus on introducing new grammar and practicing conversational skills. Homework will reinforce the grammar introduced each week. Students will enjoy practicing their German skills using periodic games. Classes will feature famous German-speaking composers and their works. Each week, students will be asked to listen to or watch ERF Christian German TV/Radio which stream live. Throughout the year, we will also look at German traditions and history. The class includes written and oral testing. Students should be prepared to speak on mic in class every week. For this reason, I ask that each student have a fairly new microphone / headset. German II students will study short passages and poetry in German for reading comprehension.
