Full-year course. This course builds on the foundation established in German II. Over the course of the year, students will learn how to correct false statements and offer correct information, discuss films and books, talk about changes over time and into the future, compare their own country to other countries, and talk about strengths and weaknesses. To accomplish these communicative tasks, they will learn the accompanying grammatical structures. Students will use skills in the following areas and build global competency skills for future careers and experience based on the World-readiness Standards for Learning Languages from the ACTFL: Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities.

We recommend that students enrolling in German III be comfortable with the topics covered in Grammar III. Grammar instruction is not a pre- or co-requisite, however we have found that students are more successful learning a new language when they have a strong understanding of grammar rules. Use the placement tests found in our grammar course descriptions to find the appropriate grammar course for your student.
Prerequisite: German II; German III Placement Test
