Description: German 2 builds on the foundation laid in German 1 with a similar pedagogical model. Students grow their German vocabulary, and portions of the live classes are dedicated to conversational practice. Speaking topics include a variety of common terms and situations, including farm animals, vacations, the weather, and hobbies. Language games and ERF Christian German radio/tv continue to be used for content review and student engagement. Students learn increasingly complex German grammar and sentence formulation, which allows them to expand their conversational depth.

  • What is a Live Online Class Session in German 2?

    In every HSLDA Academy course, students meet weekly with their instructor and classmates in an online classroom for additional teaching, discussion, Q&A, or group activities. The class sessions are interactive and are conducted using a web meeting software with video, audio, chat, and application sharing capabilities.

    Scheduled, real-time sessions in the online classroom are not the only form of instruction available in a HSLDA Online Academy course, but are offered in addition to lectures or other instructional materials that students are able to access online at their convenience.

    When they register, students will need to select a particular class section and live class meeting time. Additional class sections may be added to the schedule at a later point in the course registration period. Registered students will be notified of any changes to the live session schedule.

  • What if I have a schedule conflict with listed German 2 class times?

    All live class sessions are recorded for later viewing. While it is recommended that students attend each live class session, students can make arrangements to watch the recordings and receive full participation credit.

    Students should contact their instructor at the start of their course to inform the instructor of any foreseen schedule conflicts.
