Description

This course is designed to help you improve your command of German through speaking, reading, writing, and listening at the intermediate level and to prepare you for success in other 300- and 400-level German courses. With that in mind, we will pay special attention to refining your written expression in German by using two different approaches to writing: (1) MPG: a model-based, process-oriented, and genre-focused approach; (2) creative, spontaneous, in-class writing. We will also take on a systematic review of German grammar and word usage.

Course Requirements:

Requirements: approximately four 2-page essays in German with rewrites, one short in-class presentation, weekly grammar quizzes, daily speaking practice, readings, writing exercises. No final exam.

Class Format:

Instruction Mode: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday class meetings will be in-person. Thursday class meetings will be remote and dedicated to intense speaking practice and small group collaboration online.

Learning Mode: Remote class meetings will be held synchronously; students are expected to be available during all scheduled class times. Remote class meetings will take place via Zoom. Students will need a reasonably stable internet connection with enough bandwidth for videoconferencing and a computer (or tablet) equipped with a camera.
