REQUIRED COURSE MATERIALS:N/A

Intermediate Conversation focuses primarily on student language production. Students should be comfortable with classes conducted in German. The class offers methodical practice for listening and speaking. Classes are centered around thematic units (politics, travel, Weimar Republic, food) selected as a class by participants. Classes incorporate authentic, German-language media as stimulus for discussion and analysis. This course can be taken multiple times, as the topics covered vary by semester. Additionally, this course can be joined mid-Semester.


For homework, students are encouraged to review and seek out new vocabulary related to the topic of the next class. Additionally, each class will begin with a speaking prompt based on the previous class' topic. Students can elect to prepare for this, where more advanced students are encouraged to try to speak more extemporaneously.

Loved:

The proctors were patient and clear in their instructions. They executed the several parts of the exam on time, efficiently. I'm glad I took the test, and I look forward to eventually taking the B1 exam.

Improvements:

The listening part of the exam was much more difficult than the other parts. The conversations were spoken quite quickly, faster than I normally hear on news broadcasts such as Deutsche Welle and Tagesschau. I need to improve my listening skills, but it seemed like maybe the listening portion was maybe a bit out of scale difficulty-wise with the other parts.
