Course description:
This course will cover a year’s worth of German in two parts, Fall and Spring. We will use a child’s approach of learning the language through music, story-telling, and poetry. Each class will consist of vigorous grammar drills, a quiz, cultural activities, and story-telling. At the end of the year, the student should be able to carry out short conversations in German and write short, simple stories. This will be tested with a final exam.

Course outline: To be announced
Homework: Composition, translation, and memorization of grammar charts and rules and of various German poems and songs.
