For most learners of a foreign language, speaking is the hardest skill to master. Do you still lack confidence starting a conversation in German? Do you struggle to find the right words? Do you feel like you talked about a topic in class before but still cannot imagine discussing it with a native speaker? If you answered yes, GRMN 205 is a perfect fit for you. This course is focused on building conversational skills and giving students strategies for working around their limited vocabulary so they can keep their German conversations going. Learning about cultural nuances and culturally appropriate ways to approach different situations are also integral parts of this class. In addition, we will systematically review and build on grammar skills thus improving reading and writing fluency. This class is very interactive and will include group work, discussions, Flipgrid recordings, interviews, and conversations with native speakers via Talk Abroad. There will also be chapter tests and a final presentation.
Honors students will be studying the material more in depth. They will have additional homework, will be responsible for creating a more involved presentation at the end of the semester, and will need to spend more time speaking with our native speaker partners.
Instructor: Victoria Finney
Prerequisite: German 107 or equivalent
Designed as an introduction to literature for students who have developed basic German language skills, this course will enable you to read German fiction with greater ease and appreciation. In order to build confidence gradually, we’ll begin with very short stories, progressing step-by-step to longer ones. We’ll also work with a short film and some lyrics of contemporary music. On occasion, we’ll review selected aspects of grammar. Students will be asked to write several short, creative essays, and to take a midterm and final exam.
Instructor: Nancy Nobile

How do people deal with their past sins and those of their family? Of society? How do historical circumstances change how we view sin, guilt, and responsibility? Who are the victims? Who are the perpetrators? Can justice be achieved? In this course we will discuss how literary texts from the 19th -20th centuries and a few recent films explore these questions.
Students will complete several short writing assignments, two essays, and a midterm and final exam
