Additional ideas for AMD 4:
Here are some additional specific ideas for this AMD:
- By now you've probably accumulated a lot of questions about the culture readings you've done online in German 101 and 102, and what you've read in the "Brennpunkt Kultur" boxes in Vorsprung - and probably also lots of other questions you'd like to ask a "real" German/Austrian/Swiss person. And there's surely someone from Germany, Austria or Switzerland whom you know from one of your classes, or from where you live or where you work, or whom you've met socially. So ask him/her if s/he'll let you interview him/her, and if s/he says yes, arrange a time, and figure out what you want to ask. Ask your questions auf Deutsch (switch to English when you need to), and perhaps also just make some conversation auf Deutsch for fun.
- Visit livemocha.com (perhaps combine this with the idea above!). This is a social networking site for people trying to learn languages. Allows you to do exercises (both written and spoken), and connects you with native speakers who critique what you've done. Also allows you to chat with people who speak the language you're trying to learn and who are trying to learn the language you speak.
- If you enjoyed Verliebt in Berlin, watch another episode in the LRC (the DVD is on reserve)!
- Gehen Sie zur Kaffeestunde oder zu einem Deutschtisch im Max Kade Haus.
