Instructional content in German II introduces students to new grammar and vocabulary and allows them to build conversational and reading skills to cover many common situations in daily life. Like German I, this follow-up course adheres to the standards of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). Learning activities in each unit are focused on a specific theme. The units for both semesters cover a broad range of useful everyday subjects, including daily routine, animals, entertainment, body parts, rooms and furniture, shopping and clothing, meals, sports and recreation, and transportation. Students must successfully complete German I in order to enroll in this course.
