Spring 2015 - Undergraduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
This course is a continuation of Beginning German I. It is designed to further develop and strengthen the student's understanding, speaking, reading and writing in German. It continues to build a firm foundation in the language by focusing on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, speech patterns, reading and understanding texts as well as translation. Repetition and creativity are essential in language study, and this course is planned and organized to supply both. Students will encounter and work on mastering beginning communication skills in German and will also acquire an understanding of, and respect for, cultural differences. Acquiring a foreign language is learning a new sill, and this requires practice to become proficient. The main emphasis will be on classroom interaction, so students are urged to attend class at all times, to be on time, and to be prepared.
Prerequisite: Beginning German I or placement test.
