German language study is integrated in contexts: social situations, authentic tasks (such as giving directions or describing people), games, exchanging information, and culture (such as literary readings).

By the end of German 3 you will develop abilities in such areas as making cultural comparisons, expressing opinions, narrating in past time, writing stories, reporting about current events, writing about historical events, discussing future goals, expressing hypothetical statements, and reporting on historical topics.
