German (GER)

GER 301 (IL) Intermediate Speaking and Listening (3) Intensive practice in spoken German through readings, discussions and video.

GER 301 Intermediate Conversation and Composition (3)

German 301 is a continuation of the composition and conversation emphases of both GER 201 and 208. Fundamental to the course is a thorough grammar review of both basic and advanced grammatical situations. Much of this review is done outside of class. In class, students devote their time primarily to oral work. GER 301 requires students to use German in various ways: group work, individual presentations, discussion of texts, structured partner drills, etc

Student evaluations are based on participation, homework, quizzes, a class room presentation, and essays.

GER 301 is required for all German majors and the German minor and will be offered every semester.
