Course Overview

Learning a new language is a multi-faceted experience in which you are introduced to a
whole new set of words and ways of expressing yourself with words, along with new
cultures formed by people who have been speaking that language for centuries. The
German-speaking world spans Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and
Liechtenstein in Europe, as well as many other parts of the world.

In German 1B, you’ll be introduced to several common situations in which people
describe how to earn, save, and manage money, modes of urban transportation,
various seasons and the associated weather conditions, food, clothes, and activities.
You’ll also describe various art forms, plays, concerts, and movies. You’ll discuss health
and well-being, and travel and tourism. You’ll build on what you learned in the German
1A course to communicate by listening, speaking, reading, and writing in German as
you internalize new vocabulary and grammar. You’ll also learn about some regions of
the German-speaking world that the central characters of each unit are visiting. You will
build on this semester’s work as you advance in your German studies: everything that
you learn about a language and the cultures in which it is spoken will serve as a
foundation for further learning.

Course Goals

By the end of this course, you will be able to do the following:
• Recognize and use past tense verb forms (participles) of regular verbs, particularly
those using the auxiliary verb haben (to have).
• Use present tense to describe different weather conditions and the associated foods,
clothing and activities.
• Review the verbs for “to need,” “to go,” and “to be able to.”
• Use the preterite tense of “buy,” “shop,” “pay,” and “receive” in the context of shopping.
• Use the verb sein (to be) with respect to weather conditions.
• Use and review the future tense, werden + infinitive, to talk about what is happening
now, and what is going to happen.
• Use reflexive verbs in both the present tense and in the imperative mode.
• Use verbs wehtun (it hurts), schmerzen (pain), and fühlen (to feel).
• Use the formal imperative to provide basic personal information.
• Use the imperfekt tense of sein (to be) to talk about past experiences in different countries.
• Use the prepositions nach, in, an, and auf to express direction.
