Welcome to Grenzenlos Deutsch! Although this curriculum is designed to be flexible in the way that each instructor orders and sequences the material, we suggest that you start with this unit, because it provides some of the basic vocabulary and structures necessary for learning German from scratch.
This unit introduces the basics of German vocabulary and grammar. Students will learn how to introduce themselves and how to describe their families, friends, homes, and hobbies. Students will also learn fundamental German vocabulary, including the days of the week, colors, and the numbers 1 through 1000.
