Intensive First-Year German
Accelerated first-year German. Speaking and listening. Secondary objectives are reading and writing. This courses allows you to complete the equivalent of one year's worth of a college-level foreign language.
Germ 100 covers the content of the first-year language courses (101, 102 and 103) in one course over the period of three months. In this course, we follow a communicative/task-based approach to language learning. It springs from the idea that languages are best learned when real-world information and real language use become the focus of student activities. The course content takes a balanced approach to engaging students in speaking, listening, reading and writing of German from the beginning. Throughout the course, students will listen to and read comprehensible German and have ample opportunities to use German in autograph, interview, information-gap, role-play, writing and other personalized and theme-based activities.
