Description

GERMAN 426 is devoted to enhancing the writing, reading, speaking, and listening skills of advanced students of German. We will use various approaches to improve student proficiency.

Course Requirements:

Students will be expected to read advanced texts, such as newspaper articles and fiction, and to view films and videos, all of which will serve as a foundation for essay compositions and classroom discussions. Written assignments include a composition of approximately 400 words every two weeks, as well as a subsequent correction of that composition. All students are expected to have excellent attendance and to participate in classroom discussions. The final grade is based on attendance, essay scores, and class participation.

Class Format:

Aside from the occasional English-language discussion of a complex and difficult grammar topic, this course will be conducted exclusively in German.
