GER 308Y German Business Communication (3)
This course provides an introduction to German business and economics. Students will read and respond to a variety of texts about German economic practices and the German business world, as well as texts that introduce and describe more general economic principles. Emphasis is also placed on expanding students' vocabulary and further developing their writing skills in German, especially with regards to economic and business terminology, and writing genres common in business contexts. As this is not intended to be a grammar review course, students are expected to have previously completed or be concurrently enrolled in GER 301 or its equivalent. This course complements other offerings in the German business track and prepares students for the final course in the Business German sequence. This course can also be counted towards either the German minor or the German major. It is offered once a year during the fall semester.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
