Willkommen in Deutsch 1 Klasse! During this year you will be learning basic vocabulary, and culture about German speaking countries. You should always remember that learning a language is difficult and that it takes time and a lot of hard work. You are on the same level as a 2 year old. You understand sounds but are just learning to match words with certain things. This year you will be increasing your vocabulary daily and practicing the vocabulary you are learning.
Our class will consist of listening, speaking, reading, writing and most of all learning new vocabulary. Grades will be taken on many of the activities.
Homework will be graded on a 5-point scale. 5=all work completed, 3=most or half of the work completed, 1=you started it and 0=you did no homework.
Listening will be graded on participation during the activity. 5=on task during listening, 3=on task half of the time and 0=did not participate.
Speaking will be graded on participation during the activity. 5=on task during the speaking activity, 3=on task half of the time and 0=did not participate.
