German I, German II segment 1

Course Description:

As you look at these sentences, you can see where you are in your language learning, and where you are heading. There is a present tense sentence: Wilkommen zu Deutsch 2 – Welcome to German 2; a past tense sentence: Wir haben viel in Deutsch 1 gelernt – We learned a lot in German 1; and a future sentence: Jetzt werden wir viel mehr Deutsch lernen –Now we will learn a lot more German. You have built a solid foundation for learning the German language. Now you can add to that base with lots of vocabulary and idioms, adjectives, adverbs, comparisons, verb tenses, active and passive structures, conditional and subjunctive sentences. Your simple sentences of German 1 will quickly become the compound and complex sentences which characterize the German language. We will also continue our comparison of German and American culture. There are many aspects of daily life for us to explore. Pictures, videos, and short readings will provide us with authentic material to view German life.
