This course typically follows GRST101 and 102 and increases students' proficiency in the German language while they learn about different cities and regions in the German-speaking world. Working collaboratively, students engage in cultural activities with authentic readings and contextualized grammar in a unifying context. Through exposure to a variety of texts and text types, students develop oral and written proficiency in description and narration, as well as discourse strategies for culturally authentic interaction with native speakers. Classes focus on active use of the language. Film, music, and other audio clips are regularly integrated into the course to increase students' listening comprehension. Through regular writing assignments, students expand their vocabulary and practice varied styles and techniques. Among the course goals are improved communication and reading skills, an expanded vocabulary, more accurate and nuanced written expression, and increased insight into historical and cultural features of the German-speaking world. After the successful completion of this course, students can study abroad through Wesleyan's approved German programs in Berlin and Hamburg or continue with GRST212 at Wesleyan.
