High School German III

While systematically reviewing concepts previously learned and shoring up a sound understanding of all the fundamentals of German grammar and syntax, students will advance to more complex constructions like the subjunctive.  German 3 will begin to explore exemplary German prose and poetry (including excerpts and short texts from Heinrich Heine, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Franz Kafka, et al.) Additionally, students will continue to strengthen conversational skills about subjects both mundane and sublime, discussing artwork, music, and folk tales used to supplement the main text. This class includes 30 hours of live online instruction per semester, designed to develop students’ skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
