This course is a continuation of German I, part 1. Students expand their listening and speaking skills as well as their writing skills with themes such as hobbies, family, best wishes and professions. They also continue to learn poems and songs, which emphasize correct pronunciation and sentence rhythm. Students deepen their cultural experiences by learning about fascinating traditions such as celebrating carnival, or by exploring Germany’s geography, including some important cities, such as Hamburg. Reading a monthly German magazine enhances the cultural aspect.
