Students will expand their vocabularies and study more advanced grammatical structures that will lead to effective handling of social situations. Students will continue to gain familiarity with German life and customs. This course features new interactive elements: live one-on-one speaking appointments, a student discussion board, and an instructor-hosted wiki. There is strong emphasis on learning to speak the language, as well as read and write it. This is the third course in a four-part German series (GERM 041, GERM 043, GERM 051, and GERM 053).
Students will need access to a computer with high speed Internet access, a microphone, speakers (or headphones), and a webcam.
There are no resubmissions or retakes on instructor-graded assignments, unit quizzes or the final exam. On speaking appointments, lowest score may be dropped. You must complete the speaking appointment in each unit before you can move on to the next unit.
