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 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, 043, 051, and 053).
