Description

In this course, students are invited to dive into the fascination ‘Fußball’. Introduction to the rules, soccer-jargon, teams, and players will be part of the class time, as well as historical and cultural aspects of soccer in the German-speaking countries and an analysis of the 2018 World Cup in Russia. We will also discuss the controversy about Özil/Gündogan, which preceded the ill-fated World Cup. The material for discussions and student presentations is based on literary texts, internet resources, short videos sequences, and a movie. The course will be conducted in German; weekly readings and motivated participation are required. Matters of German grammar, which may occur while improving the speaking, reading and writing skills, will be reviewed as needed.

Course Requirements:

Course requirements include class participation, a language journal, two essays, two class presentations, and a final project.

Intended Audience:

Students should have a strong interest in soccer.
