Fall 2014 - Undergraduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
This course is a continuation of Beginning German II and as such, it expands on the student's understanding, speaking, reading, and writing in German. It is designed to continue to build a firm foundation in the language. The main emphasis will be on classroom interaction, so students are urged to attend class regularly, to be on time, and to be prepared. You will encounter and work on mastering intermediate communication skills in German and acquire an understanding of, and respect for, cultural differences. We will review and learn new grammar topics and expand and reinforce basic and more advanced knowledge and writing skills in German. We will also begin to examine and evaluate specific aspects of German life, culture, thought, and literature. Due to the fact that this is a communicative and student-centered course, you will interact a lot with your classmates. Acquiring a foreign language is learning a new skill, and this requires practice to become proficient.
Pre-requisite: Beginning German I and II, or placement exam.
