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.
