During the third year of German the student continues to use the language skills acquired in the first and second years but with greater accuracy. The student is now required to use the language and previously learned structure and vocabulary to produce spontaneous conversation. Emphasis is placed on oral and written proficiency using the vocabulary for daily living. Units studied include vacations, health, shopping, geography, city parts, and directions. Students prepare individual cultural presentations on the various cities in Germany as well as the other German-speaking nations. Students review points of grammar as a supplement to these units. Although emphasis on reading and writing continues, the majority of class time is spent on improving oral proficiency.
