Welcome to my German course. This is not to be mistaken for a complete course in German; there is no substitute for the practice and interaction supplied by a good teacher. My hope is that this site will 1) aid learners of German as they work their way through their own courses, 2) provide some structure and review for more advanced learners as they look back, and 3) supply over-worked German teachers with some online resources.

Viel Spaß beim Deutsch lernen!

Above, next to Willkommen!, is a link to my work on learningapps.org. Teachers: each exercise has a QR code at the bottom. Students can scan the code, and all work on the same exercise at the same time.

I've begun using Rob Williams' Thematic Short Stories and the Treffpunkt Berlin videos in my classes, and I've created some exercises for them. They will appear as I make them on the pages above, next to the Willkommen! page.

QR Codes

Teachers: I've started making new exercises using learningapps.org. These exercises come with a QR code. I'm marking them here with "(QR)". Open the exercise, scroll to the bottom of the page, and the code will be on the lower right side. If you display the exercise on a Smartboard or projector, tap the QR code and it will enlarge. Students can scan the code with their phones or tablets, and the whole class can do the activity simultaneously.

Video and Cartoon Links

At my own school, the network keeps changing, and sometimes the embedded cartoons and videos don't show. I have put direct links to them on the pages, and those should take you directly to youtube.com or toondoo.com.

At the bottom of the pages, you may notice some information with the heading NBTHS. Feel free to download the vocabulary lists if you like, although you may be confused by the format and the structures I've selected. The "Public" quizzes are available for anyone to use. The "NBTHS Only" quizzes are specifically for my students at North Brunswick Township High School and require a password.
