This course provides students with a forum where they can apply their knowledge of German in meaningful and creative ways. The curriculum builds on the vocabulary and grammatical structures introduced in our Beginner and Intermediate language offerings, and it is designed to help you use these in a variety of social configurations, from everyday communication to job interviews. A special focus lies on mastering phrases and idioms that recur frequently in formal and informal settings. To this end, we will frequently engage in role plays emulating everyday life situations in German-speaking settings. This course is taught in German. Prerequisite: GERM 210 or equivalent German proficiency.
