German I 2nd Semester Exam Outline May, 2012 (Frau Lader)
To best prepare for this exam, which will cover Chapters 4-7 and parts of Chapter 8, you should
- review all dialogues throughout each chapter (you may leave out the dialogues that are labeled “Lesestück” at the end of each chapter, as we did not do these).
- review all vocabulary lists (at the end of each section and at the end of each chapter).
- review all green sections labeled “Sprache” (this is the grammar you will be responsible for).
- review all notes you have been given in class. This is particularly important, as you have received extensive notes expanding upon what was in the textbook.
NOTE: Learning a foreign language is by its very nature cumulative. You may also need to review the material from Chapters 1-3 in order to be able to do what is required in Chapters 4-8.
