Poetry Recitation


Students sign up for the Poetry Recitation competition according to their level of German.  The poems selected reflect the year's SGC theme.  Poems for first year students are the shortest, and those for fourth and fifth year students, along with those for native speakers, are the longest.  Each student must select one of the two poems offered to memorize and recite from memory.  Students recite the poem one time in front of two judges - no one else is present in the room.  Judges rate students on pronunciation, accuracy, and overall performance.
