As you’ve been hearing about the last of couple weeks, abcteach’s Foreign Language Section has a diverse, comprehensive supply of materials for learning and reinforcing new languages. The first Eye on Curriculum article explored our Spanish resources in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. We then went to the French section and toured the many subcategories to help students learn about French language, history, and cultural traditions.

Today, we are delving into two beautiful European languages: German and Italian. Similar to our other sections, these categories are filled with an abundance of creative materials to make learning (and teaching) both fun and easy. Take a look below to find a sampling of free and member-site links for everything from grammar, to conjugation, numbers, vocabulary, and other linguistic expressions.
