Primary Instructor:


The objective of this course is to practice speaking while building vocabulary, in particular formulating compelling questions and answers, and to expand one’s ability to converse in German about personal topics, current events, chosen points of interest, and more. Students will give presentations in pairs throughout the semester on a topic of their choice in order to stimulate interesting discussions. Other materials will be pulled from German websites and other media sources.

Class Format:

Instruction Mode: As a DC (Distance due to COVID) course, all aspects of this course will be fully compatible with remote online learning.

Learning Mode: Because this is a conversation class, we will have required synchronous discussions and activities. This course will use Canvas for all asynchronous online components. Required synchronous meetings with the instructor will be conducted through Zoom. Students should have access to a camera and microphone.

Course Testing/Assessment: Assessments and homework will be asynchronous. This work will be submitted via Canvas during a designated time frame.
