AP® German Language and Culture

Du bist ready for this test.


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.

  • Learn how to cut those tricky compound words down to size.
  • Get tips on how to remember words from ablegen to zwitschern.
  • Figure out why exactly Deutschland is das Land der Dichter und Denker.

Du bist awesome, so get to studying.
