Learning a foreign language is not easy. It requires hard work and dedication. WHS German courses are designed for every student to be able to succeed, as long as he/she puts enough effort into this subject. In German classes, we will learn a lot of new words, phrases and grammatical structures that will help you understand common German and express yourselves in the language.
This is a highly interactive class (after all, being able to interact in the foreign language is the main purpose of it), so active participation in all activities is necessary to acquire the material. This must and will include speaking in class. Please, do not be shy - students are all learning, and the best way to do so in a foreign language is together with other people.
But besides doing all that work, we will also have fun!
We will play a variety of interactive games on a regular basis that will help you practice the language in an entertaining way. And there are rewards for winning!
We will watch cultural videos about Germany and German-speaking countries and even a German teenage soap opera to gain a better image of Germany and to hear and imitate the practical use of the language.
We will complete projects in the classroom and computer labs to combine your imagination with acquired knowledge of the language and modern technology for creating a product that is fun, meaningful and useful for practicing your language skills in German. For example: making posters, creating and publishing online storybooks, designing city plans and dream houses, directing a movie and producing commercials, writing comic books, making family trees, creating travel videos and even participating in a fashion show.
And of course, let’s not forget our cultural celebrations with German food and games.
In other words, prepare to work hard, but there will be many fun things to make up for it. J
