Im Vordergrund von diesem Kurs stehen zwei Aspekte: Deutsche Kultur und der deutsche Sprachgebrauch. Wir werden uns im ersten Kursteil mit der modernen deutschen Sprache beschäftigen. Danach werden wir die Nachrichten anschauen und anhand von Zeitungsartikeln über Themen sprechen, die in Deutschland aktuell sind. Im dritten Kursteil werden wir einige literarische Texte lesen. Parallel dazu wollen wir über Ihr Deutsch sprechen und daran arbeiten, es grammatisch und stilistisch weiter zu verbessern. Darüber hinaus soll dieser Kurs Sie herausfordern und Ihren Ehrgeiz wecken, die deutsche Sprache in ihrer Vielfalt zu analysieren und anzuwenden.

Students in this class will be required to do extensive writing and rewriting. One oral presentation is required of each student. The final grade is based on the compositions as well as participation in the discussions.
