Practice in Speaking and Writing German

GRST 214
Spring 2010
Section: 01  
Certificates: International Relations

This course is designed to build and strengthen skills in oral and written German. It functions as a "bridge" between the basic language series (GRST 101/102/211) and the more advanced literature/culture courses. This course extends the focus on language and culture through reading, interpreting, and discussing longer German texts (including poems and short stories) begun in GRST 211. Moreover, students will research various aspects of the history and culture of Germany and gain practice writing about and presenting the results of their research. Grammar instruction and review as well as vocabulary building are integral parts of this course, since mastery of the structures of German will facilitate your ability to express more complex ideas. We will supplement the textbook with additional readings, music, and films. Class meetings will be conducted in German.

Essential Capabilities: Speaking, Writing
Speaking: Intensive practice in speaking German to articulate and defend ideas & interpretations.

Writing: Frequent writing & revising; stylistic exercises.
