Germanic Languages | Reading in German for Graduate Students
G492 | 10641-10642 | W. Westphal
This course enables students to increase their reading precision and
fluency through a comprehensive review of basic grammar, attention to
advanced points of grammar, expansion of vocabulary, graded readings,
and regular reading and translation of original, unedited scholarly
writing and similar texts. The class is conducted entirely in
English; listening, speaking, and writing skills are not developed,
although some pronunciation practice is included.
Any graduate student may enroll in G492 who has either 1) completed
G491 at IUB with a grade of B or higher; or 2) achieved an official
score of 20 or higher on Form A (Form B: 11) of the campus GSFLE,
which is administered by the IUB Bureau of Evaluative Studies and
Please note that G492 carries no graduate credit (towards graduate
degree credit-hour requirements) in the University Graduate School,
although most departments accept G492 enrollment as part of a
studentís current program of study.
The Department of Germanic Studies does not permit auditing of G492
for any reason.
