Victoria I. Rizo Lenshyn (Section 01)


Our multimedia course acquaints students with present day life and culture in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Authentic documents and interviews with native speakers from all walks of life serve as a first-hand introduction to the German-speaking countries. An interactive learning software, as well as related Internet audio-visual materials emphasize the mastery of speaking, writing, and reading skills that are the foundation for further study. Three hours a week for explanation and demonstration, one hour a week in small TA sections.

Taught exclusively online, so 5-college students are welcome to enroll! Students and teachers interface using Zoom, Google drive, Moodle and the textbook online platform. A flexible MWF 50-minute Zoom meeting accommodates class and group sessions that include German beats in the waiting room.

Fall semester: Lecturer Rizo Lenshyn. Spring semester: Lecturer Schrade.
