German

GER 100 German I (3)

This course introduces students to one of the world’s major languages, German. The course gives students the skills they need to be able to speak, write, and understand simple German in everyday situations. No prior knowledge of German is required. In addition to developing competency in the language, students gain a sense of life in German-speaking countries and will have the chance to reflect not only on what they are learning but on how they are learning it as well. Cultural aspects of the language are also a focus with opportunities to contrast German and North American cultural practices.

GER 101 German II (3)

This course builds on the language proficiency achieved in GER 100. The course expands your abilities in reading, writing, listening and speaking while at the same time focusing on building lexis and providing greater awareness of grammatical forms. There is a continued emphasis on proficiency in the active use of the German language rather than simply on passive comprehension.
