GERM 304: Conversation and Composition I

(1 unit)
Prerequisites: GERM 301 or equivalent, or permission of the instructor
This course is intended to help you improve your writing and speaking skills. ALL COMMUNICATION WILL BE CONDUCTED EXCLUSIVELY IN GERMAN.  Although this is not specifically a content course we will learn some aspects of the history and culture of German-speaking countries to spur discussions and ideas for writing assignments. In written assignments attention should be given to the quality of the content, extending your vocabulary range, and consistent grammar. For in-class discussions more attention will be given to communicating your intent rather than strict assessment of grammar. In support of these goals we will cover select grammar points presented in context in each chapter. This is an upper division course and it is assumed that you have already acquired a solid foundation in grammar.  Staff
