Elementary German II
Building upon the innovative online collaborative instruction, learning, and mentoring in GRMN 101, this online course is designed to strengthen and deepen students’ language competence in the three modes of communication (interpersonal, presentational, and interpretive). Through the authentic visual, audio, and textual content from Deutsche Welle for self-learning, and materials prepared by the instructor, students express a variety of day-to-day needs and engage in conversations about topics pertinent to them. The city of Berlin stands at the center of the course and students will become familiar with the Arts, media, and current social topics. The online distance-learning tool Adobe Connect facilitates the synchronous part of the course, thereby engaging students in collaborative online written and verbal conversation monitored by the instructor. Online office hours and individual interviews with the instructor will complete the online assessment.
