German IV

German IV

High School

World Languages

Course Description:

Students are able to engage in conversation and comprehend another person’s dialogue without much repetition. Topics go well beyond basic needs and include: personal and family affairs, current events, school, work, etc. Students can comprehend descriptions and narration referring to past, present, or future events. They can comprehend dialogue about special fields of interest and narratives of a non-technical or specialized nature. When listening to material restricted mainly to vocabulary and structures studied in class, their comprehension appears to be on a near native-like level. There is an increased comprehension of in-depth material about special-interest topics used in class. Grammar control includes all but the infrequently used and the most complex forms and word order problems. Students work toward building a larger reading, speaking, and listening vocabulary through use of materials representative of the German-speaking culture.
