How to use these activities

Skills practice activities and grammatical and cultural information are organized ideally to supplement the first-year German language textbook Alles klar? (2e), but can be used as a supplement in any course. Material is divided into 26 assignment sets that can easily be correlated to the weeks in academic quarters or semesters:
Beginning German I: Part 1:   Assignment Set #1 to 6 - Alles klar? Chapters 1 to 3
Beginning German I: Part 2:   Assignment Set #7 to 13 - Alles klar? Chapters 4 to 6
Beginning German II: Part 1:  Assignment Set #1 to 6 - Alles klar? Chapters 7 to 9
Beginning German II: Part 2:  Assignment Set #7 to 13 - Alles klar? Chapters 10 to 12
Not included here are all of the activities on the Alles klar? Companion Website.

The German practice activities provide extra practice with structures, vocabulary, communicative exchange and listening. The Further reading on language & culture will expand learners' knowledge of German culture and grammar. Links are carefully selected to be suitable for beginning learners of German.

The Suggested cultural exploration activities provide options for examining German cultural issues in more depth.
