GM 202 German Composition and Conversation II (Spring: 3)

Prerequisite: GM 201 or its equivalent
Satisfies Foreign Language Proficiency Core Requirement
Auditors must register.
Required for German major and German minor.

This course is designed to improve fluency in spoken and written German. Review of grammar will be restricted to a few selected, difficult items. Short German compositions will be written periodically. Coursework includes systematic vocabulary building (including German idiomatic expressions as well as compound nouns and adjectives), listening comprehension, speaking exercises (spontaneous and guided dialogues), and reading. This is not so much a course in which the student progresses from phase to phase as one in which continuous practice and frequent intensive exposure to the foreign language will lead to progress in overall proficiency.
