What you'll learn in this german class:

We are offering a unique course for graduate students who must demonstrate proficiency in a second language or in German.  

Graduate students often must demonstrate proficiency in a second language. Some students opt for two or more semesters of language study, while others choose to prepare for a reading and translation exam. If you’re in the latter group, this course — Reading and Translating German Texts — is for you. 

Over five weeks, in 30 sessions of three hours each, you’ll come to understand the nuts and bolts of German grammar, syntax, and vocabulary. In addition, you’ll learn effective strategies for avoiding common translation pitfalls and translating German texts into idiomatic English. 

The course will move at a brisk pace and homework will be frequent (read: daily) and substantial. You will learn how to pronounce German, but speaking German and understanding spoken German is not what this course is about. It is about preparing you to comprehend and then translate German texts from a variety of academic disciplines into decent English prose. In other words, it’s intended to get you ready for your reading and translation exam.

Includes a "floating" three hour sessions conducted via Skype.
