Course Catalog ID:
Subject Categories:
Global Language, Honors

In German 3 students complete the foundation in German proficiency which they began building in German 1 and continued in German 2. In a lively, interactive classroom environment students will continue to develop their communication and comprehension skills. Students will learn to talk about health and personal care, negotiate daily life in a modern German city, talk about careers and jobs, and discuss the natural world around them. These areas require students to develop enhanced proficiency, acquire new vocabulary and grammar skills, and strengthen their control of vocabulary and grammar that they acquired in the first two years of German. Students will grow in their ability to comprehend and discuss a variety of longer written and audio texts. Students should be prepared to participate actively in weekly class sessions. In-class learning will be reinforced through weekly homework activities in the online workbook.

“This class was the perfect blend of culture and language. The teacher did a splendid job of incorporating the Austrian and German traditions during class in addition to teaching us the concepts of the German language. This was a fun class and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it.”

“The German courses at TPS have been some of my favorite courses throughout high school. The program has placed me at a level far above many of my peers coming from other educational environments in my ability to understand, speak, and test in a world language. The teacher creates a wonderful environment for our learning during class time where each of the students, no matter his or her abilities or skill level, can comfortably practice the German language. Through these courses, I have been exposed to opportunities that have bolstered my personal resume and allowed me to test my abilities and stretch myself. The teacher has always been extremely willing to help in any area possible so that I can grow as a student of the German language and culture. For other students searching for an enjoyable way to learn a language extremely influential in today’s world, I would fully recommend the German program here at TPS.”
