Level II: Intermediate German: Experiencing the German-Speaking World

Goals

Level II is a two-course sequence within the German Department’s nationally recognized integrated curriculum “Developing Multiple Literacies.” The courses are organized topically to familiarize students with contemporary life in the German-speaking world. In Intensive Intermediate, we explore the following themes in our content-based instructional sequence in one semester, the non-intensive sequence uses two semesters:

The six topics addressed are:
Theme 1: Wo ich zu Hause bin: Was heißt "Heimat"?
Theme 2: Nationalstolz -- eine deutsche Debatte
Theme 3: Von Kunst bis Kitsch: die Kulturstadt Wien
Theme 4: Mensch, Natur und Umwelt
Theme 5: Literature: Märchen
Theme 6: Deutschland aus ausländischer Sicht

Level II courses include German 021 (fall semester), German 022 (spring semester), and German 032 (intensive track, taught fall and spring).
