Pronunciation is taught with songs, poems, proverbs, and tongue twisters. Grammar is introduced as needed for comprehension and communication in the language. Students are exposed to magazines, newspapers, maps and films to learn about the customs and people of Germany.
Vocabulary building and more intensive study of grammar leads up to the reading of contemporary literature. Conversation in simulated everyday situations is stressed and deepens the cultural understanding. hin the frame of the German language and customs are encouraged.
