Here at Shmoop, we're fascinated by a culture bold enough to call itself the Holy Roman Empire while wearing lederhosen. (Okay, fine, maybe that's just the Bavarians.) Come, sit, and let's talk castles, bratwürste, noun cases, and prepositions in Shmoop's guide to the AP German Language and Culture exam.
Specifically designed for mastering the AP German Language and Culture exam. Learn how to cut those tricky compound words down to size, how to remember words from ablegen to zwitschern, and why exactly Deutschland is das Land der Dichter und Denker.
Curious what it's like to answer 65 multiple-choice questions in response to around 10 print and audio passages, and then answer an email, write an essay, hold a conversation, and give an oral presentation, all in die Deutsche Sprache? Take a full-length practice exam with Shmoop...and then two more. We have drei!
If you forget everything you read approximately three seconds after you read it, fear not young Schmoopster (that's German for Shmoopster): refine your mad German skills with drills, more drills, and—you guessed it—even more drills.
Check out our in-depth study guide and practice problems galore on each of the topics.
