Intensive German I covers the first year of German language study in one semester. The goal of this course is to provide students with a basic but solid knowledge of grammatical structures and syntax, a functional vocabulary, familiarity with intonation patterns and native pronunciation, and practice in speaking and writing. At the end of German Intensive I, students can understand authentic and literary texts appropriate to the level and short spoken passages without glossed vocabulary, they can write an essay or short story without the aid of a dictionary, and they can converse on a range of general topics. This course, like all RC German language courses, is conducted in German, so students quickly become accustomed to using German for daily activities. Students in RC Lang 191 have many opportunities to gain facility with the language by speaking with more advanced learners and teachers in the program in informal settings, such as RC German lunch tables and coffee hours. In addition, they are introduced to web activities and films to help them explore aspects of German language and culture. In the Winter semester, the course is geared to students who have little or no prior exposure to the language.
