Help with 2nd Semester German

Hallo Leute, I've been practicing all Summer for my 2nd Semester of German in the Fall. It takes me a while to learn some concepts so I figured I should start before my class begins. Does anyone have experience with 2nd Semester German, also known as Elementary German II? I would be really grateful if anyone could tell me what I should study for and what I should expect. Thank you.

I've had a double-semester German class, if that's what you're talking about. We really just learned basics. Some simple past-tense, tons of vocabulary, grammar, sentence building, commands, and some cultural things as well. I'd suggest taking well organized notes and making plenty of flashcards for the class. You can also give yourself little quizzes on blank paper, writing down what you need to study and then checking your answers with your notes. I hope this was at least somewhat helpful. ^^;

Thank you, I appreciate it. It will be Elementary German 2 and I did the flash cards, note taking, and practicing in the office area where one of the instructors were likely to be. I mainly struggle with grammar and sentence structure. I've been making a reference book with various rules in it so hopefully, I should be prepared by the time it comes.

No problem ^^ The only advice I know to give about the grammar and structure is to ask the teacher for help after or before class. If they're anything like the one I have, they'll be more than happy to help you out with it
