1.0 Credit; Unweighted
Length: Year; Format: Meets Daily
Grades: 9, 10, 11, 12
Prerequisite(s): RMS German with a “C” or above and teacher recommendation.

This course continues to build on the topics and grammar acquired in German I at a moderate pace. There will be new units on travel and vacationing, weather, life in the city and in the country, daily and weekend activities. Students will be held responsible to actively acquire new vocabulary related to the topics discussed in class. A video series will further expose the students to the new vocabulary, the country of Germany and its customs. Students will need to show the ability to recognize time indications and communicate effectively in the present, past and future tense. Because the topic of travel and the knowledge of the German states and cities are interconnected, a presentation of an imaginary trip to Germany will be required of all students in the target language. Assessments will further include traditional tests and quizzes, oral presentations and skits.
