This course builds on previously learned vocabulary and grammar. Students will continue to sharpen their reading, writing, and listening skills. In order to reach that goal, students will be introduced to materials from newspaper articles, magazines, various works of German literature, and internet sources. In this course students will learn to think more in German and use it to participate in practical and meaningful conversation on a variety of topics.

“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.”
