German 1B

Instructor: Ursula Benham Tel: 707 869-9469 Cell: 707 849-7760 Books: Deutsch Na Klar - textbook, workbook, and lab book

1B is designed to continue German 1A. All four skills will be taught - reading - writing - listening comprehension - and conversations. The focus will be on reading, writing, and listening.

There will be singing and some poetry. It's an excellent way to learn a language. Once we memorize a song or a poem, patterns will be established and we therefore will avoid the whole thinking process about the rules, which govern any given language.

Composition of Grades:

30%homework, participation, written/oral quizzes

Preperation for homework:

Class asignments should be completed promptly. Language learning is cumulative. Therefore the student's performance towards the end of the semester will count more. If you must miss a class, please obtain your homework. Practice your homework every day! Practice several times per day for short periods. Always and always - every week review the articles!

In 1B we will study Chapters 4, 5, 6, & 7.

By the end of the semester you will be able to read simple texts, scan for general info, comprehend main ideas, listen & comprehend select texts, write some mini stories and dialogues.

Ich wünsche Ihnen. allen ein erfolgreiches semester und viel Spaß und alles Gute!
