This course follows the College Board requirements for an Advanced Placement language course.  It is taught completely in the target language and students are required to communicate only in German, that is speaking and writing.  All facets of language are stressed (reading, writing, speaking, listening, and culture) and enrichment vocabulary is offered throughout the course.  While it is not a requirement of the course to take the AP Exam in the spring, it is advised to check the student's college choice to see if they will give credits for passing the exam.  Please refer to individual university web sites for more information as all institutions are different in their requirements.
