Germanic Languages | Beginning German I
G100 | 2781-2789 | Staff
Prerequisite: This course presupposes no prior knowledge of German.
In four class meetings per week students will develop skills
(listening, speaking, reading, and writing) for communicating in
German within a cultural context. Language laboratory work and
written homework are an intrinsic part of the course, as is the
accumulation of portfolio items. Regular mandatory quizzes are
designed to give feedback to students and teaching staff and active
class participation is a requirement for successful completion of the
course, as is a passing grade on the final examination. To proceed
to G150, students need to earn a grade of C- or better in G100.
