High School German I (Grades 9-12)
High school students begin their introduction to German by focusing on the four key areas of language study: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Each unit consists of a new vocabulary theme and grammar concept, reading and listening comprehension activities, speaking and writing activities, interactive cultural presentations and task-based activities to reinforce vocabulary and grammar. There is an emphasis on providing context and conversational examples for the language concepts presented in each unit. Students will become familiar with common vocabulary terms and phrases, comprehend a wide range of grammar patterns, participate in simple conversations and respond appropriately to basic conversational prompts, analyze and compare cultural practices and perspectives of various German-speaking countries and take frequent assessments to monitor language growth. Note: Students who have already completed Middle School German 2 should enroll in German II rather than in German I.
Middlebury Interactive courses are not credit-bearing.
Our online language courses have many task-based activities that give students instant feedback. However, the writing and speaking assignments in the courses are not automatically graded. If you would like all activities within the course to be graded, we would advise you to purchase the course with teacher support included.
