G300 Deutsch: Mittelstufe I (3 cr.)
Prerequisite: G250 with a grade of C- or higher, an equivalent course
at another institution, or placement. This course is designed to
prepare students for subsequent 300-level work in German language,
literature, and culture. A variety of texts will be read including
one popular contemporary novel. In their oral and written responses
to the readings, it is expected that students will demonstrate a
growing awareness of--and sensitivity to-German culture and express
their ideas in a manner consistent with advanced language work.
Written assignments will be given weekly. With some of these,
students will assemble a website with an ABC of cultural information
on the city of Berlin.
Each student should own a good German-English/English-German
distionary as well as a standard reference grammar.
