This course is designed to improve students' oral proficiency in German and
raise their understanding of German cultural values. Students will be
sensitized to differences between North American and German culture through a
broad exposure to German popular media (video, the press, and popular
literature). In-class activities will include preparation and performance of
skits and parodies of various genres. To prepare for class, students will read
a variety of texts, watch assigned videos, and prepare their own audio tapes
and other material. At the end of the course, students should be better
prepared for studying or working in Germany, both from a linguistic and
culture perspective.
