Primary Instructor:

Like most people, you probably know of someone who claims to have acquired another language simply by watching TV, listening to music or reading. What this student has figured out is that learner motivation and interesting, comprehensible material are the keys to advancing in a second language. This course exploits that very idea by offering students a wide variety of appealing, accessible reading materials, thanks to the recent boom in Germany’s production of comics and graphic novels. While we will read and discuss several important works together, the majority of the texts will be self-selected by the students from our large collection. Class time will be dedicated to speaking about the readings and creating our own comics. There will also be a number of regular writing assignments, such as a reading journal and three short essays. No experience in reading or making comics is required.
