In this course, students will review basic German as well as learn more vocabulary and grammatical principles through different German Märchen (fairy tales). Students will hear, read, speak, and write basic German in a context that is cheery rather than Grimm. This course features interactive elements: live one-on-one speaking appointments, a student discussion board, and an instructor-hosted wiki. There is specific emphasis on speaking and comprehension, as well as reading and writing. This is the second course in a four-part German series (GERM 041, GERM 043, GERM 051, and GERM 053) and is a continuation of GERM 041 (First-Year German, Part 1).

Course Content:

Unit 1: Deutsch Wiederholung (Review)
Unit 2: German States and Capitals
Unit 3: Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten
Unit 4: Rotkäppchen
Unit 5: Vom Fischer und Seiner Frau
Unit 6: Die Sterntaler
Unit 7: Augustin und Wilhelm Tell


Students will need access to a computer with high speed Internet access, a microphone, speakers (or headphones), and a webcam. There are no resubmissions or retakes on instructor-graded assignments, unit quizzes or the final exam. On speaking appointments, lowest score may be dropped. You must complete the speaking appointment in each unit before you can move on to the next unit.
