HN German 4
The Germans of today and a brief introduction to literature comprise the content of this course. The people are understood through readings about their history and about current issues. Topics such as the environment, the school system, the political structure, and the post-war attitude toward war are discussed. Short stories and poems by such authors as Boell and Borchert, are also presented. The main emphasis throughout the course, however, is the improvement of conversation and composition skills so that the student learns to speak and write more quickly, accurately, and fluently. Special cultural projects (festivals, Karneval, cafes, television, etc.) revolving around student interest round out the content of this course.
