A one-semester course for beginners. Emphasis will be on correct pronunciation of
basic vocabulary in everyday conversations. Dialogues for travel and other practical
use will be learned. This introduction to German will prepare the student who has
never studied German to use the language correctly within a limited context and to
understand its basic structure.
This course is a faster paced version of German 1010 and is suitable for students
with previous experience with foreign language study. The cultural aspect of German-speaking
countries is also covered.
This fully transferable, seminar-style course has been designed to help students maximize
their effectiveness in the classroom. Students develop their critical thinking, reading,
and writing skills; acquire valuable strategies for analyzing course content and for
expressing themselves more confidently and effectively; improve their writing, presentation,
collaboration, and research skills; and learn to make connections between courses
in different disciplines. To view an outstanding end-of-semester presentation by Ms. Corinna E. Calise with Ms. Mikaela Kyees and Mr. Sedrick T. Uhrig, please click here. To learn more about this course, please click here: The Learner's Journey.
