German I

High School

German I provides an introduction to the basics of the German language and the German-speaking world. This two-semester course has been constructed to meet the standards of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). These standards dictate a pedagogical method that focuses on successful communication through speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Unit topics consist of the alphabet and numbers; greetings; introductions; the calendar (days, months, and seasons); weather; time; colors; familiar objects and places; family; food; pastimes; and school objects and routine.
