German - First Year I
Fall 2017 quarter
Komm und lern Deutsch! In this first course in a year-long sequence of courses for beginning German students will cover basic grammatical concepts, vocabulary, and conversation. Students will develop basic skills in speaking, reading, translating, and writing standard high German. Students will also learn about culture, traditions, and customs of the German people, new and old. Through involvement in children’s stories, music, and activities in the language laboratory, students will also become familiar with idiomatic expressions. By the end of the year, students will improve their oral skills to the point of discussing short films and modern short stories and learning how to write a formal letter, a resumé, or a job application. Classes will use a communicative method and will move quickly toward being conducted primarily in German.
