German I Part 2
Course Length: 1 Semester
Has Textbook: Yes
This course continues at the same rigorous pace as German I Part 1, but with a more in-depth approach to the fundamental aspects of the language. Students will focus their study on the verb and gain a better understanding of its principal parts, versatility, and variety of tenses across the language. The student will be able to fluidly use verbs across many tenses discerningly upon completion of this course. The case system will also be extensively examined and implemented in an increasingly natural manner with nouns, verbs, and objects. A new case will be introduced to allow for more versatility when talking about possession, time, and dependence. Adjectives will be closely studied as well, with special attention paid to declension across all four cases in a variety of situations. Finally, more natural and practical vocabulary will be studied in this part of the course. Despite its advanced level, this will allow the student to communicate a substantial range of topics, not only in contemporary Germany but also in Europe and in the rest of an interconnected world.
It is recommended that students successfully complete German I Part 1 or equivalent course work before enrolling in this course.

These courses include auditory comprehension assessments that require students to listen to audio files and to record themselves speaking. For these courses, it is essential that students have either a headset equipped with a microphone or access to an internal microphone within their computers.
