Area of Study
Goals: To enable students to speak and write more proficiently and more idiomatically leading toward mastery of fine points of German structure and style. Students learn to express convincingly their own ideas in German in response to specific works of art ranging from essays and short stories to feature films. Students will also gain insight into a range of significant contemporary works of literature and film and acquire the means to analyze and interpret these works in German. Content: Weight is given to both conversation and composition, with an emphasis on conversation and oral examination, reflection, and presentation. Written and oral exercises focus on discursive patterns and the most frequent sources of lexical and syntactical errors. Conversations and written work are based on contemporary works of literature (specifically essays, short stories, and pop literature) as well as a wide range of films accompanied by the theoretical foundation of how to interpret films in German.
