Primary Instructor:


The goal of this course is to increase your confidence in speaking on any topic in German. Henceforth, we will communicate on any topic that pertains to either current cultural or everyday events. The class focuses on expanding the existing vocabulary and varying the spoken styles that are necessary to appreciate fully life in German-speaking communities.

In addition, creative and compositional exercises (concocting and completing prose and poetry, writing extemporaneous letters, making light-tongued phone conversations — all in German) will alternate with impromptu conversational situations.

Course Requirements:

Formal class requirements include frequent informal communication with the instructor, vigorous class participation, and short oral presentations.
