This course offers students the opportunity to continue to develop their emerging German fluency and to improve their mastery of important German structures and vocabulary. As they work their way through the course, students will explore many topics and practice reflexive verbs, relative pronouns, the perfect and preterit tenses, and case endings. This course also features new interactive elements: live one-on-one speaking appointments and an instructor-hosted wiki. There is specific emphasis on speaking and comprehension, as well as reading and writing. This is the fourth course in a four-part German series (GERM 041, GERM 043, GERM 051, and GERM 053) and is a continuation of Second-Year German, Part 1 (GERM 051).
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.
