Course Format[edit]

The course has been taught over the past several years by several different professors, but generally the class is very orally focused, with small-group work within a very small class. Review of more advanced grammar, including passive and subjunctive cases, is significant, and ditto sheets are common. The course is taught entirely in German. Often those students placed in GERM 320 attend the same class but have additional work assigned.

Course Schedule[edit]

Due to the small size of the German department, the course is offered erratically to meet demand, and not more than once per year.
