German 2140H continues to develop the four language skills in a cultural context. It also reviews and expands upon the basic grammar covered in first-year German classes. By the end of this course you should have: increased your ability to communicate about topics of general interest orally and in writing; gained greater competence in German grammar, broadened your active and passive vocabulary; learned to read texts of various genres; and enhanced your knowledge of cultural issues. This course involves an accelerated pace and more intensive level of study with the expectation that all students are self-motivated and prepared to invest a lot of time in independent study in preparation for class.
