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.
