WL01546 - German 1 A 24252
Course DescriptionLearning a language is a multi-faceted experience in which you are introduced to a whole new set of words and ways of expressing yourself with words, along with new cultures formed by people who have been speaking that language for centuries. The German-speaking world spans Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and Liechtenstein in Europe, as well as many other parts of the world. In German 1A, you'll be introduced to several common situations in which people communicate, such as exchanging names and greetings, describing people by physical and personality traits, and describing family members and aspects of your social life. You'll start with basic sentence structures and grammatical tools, and you'll communicate by listening, speaking, reading, and writing in German as you internalize new vocabulary and grammar. You'll also learn about some regions of the German speaking world that the central characters of each unit are visiting. You will build on this semester's work as you advance in your German studies: everything that you learn about a language and the cultures in which it is spoken will serve as a foundation for further learning.
