Germanic Languages | Beginning German I
G100 | 7873-7876 | 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.
