German 1 (Grades 3-5)
This introductory German course provides an interactive experience for a student's first exposure to the German language. The content for each unit is based on an authentic story, myth or legend from various German-speaking cultures. Although the course focuses on vocabulary acquisition, basic grammar principles are intuitively grasped through stories, games, activities, songs and assessments. Through the course, students learn simple German phrases; begin to read, write, speak and listen for meaning in German; and recognize distinctive practices and customs of German-speaking cultures.
