About German 201

Course

You will have the unique opportunity of participating in a new German course developed right here at Hope College of all places. It will be significantly different from any other language course you have had before, so try to check your preconceptions of what learning German is at the door.

Materials

We will be using a new course curriculum called Weiter geht's! which is directly available from the publisher (cheaper) or the Hope/Geneva Bookstore. It costs $149.95 + tax and shipping from the online site: http://www.evialearning.com.

You also need to get a paperback German-English dictionary (or something on your smartphone), either from the Hope bookstore or elsewhere. And a reader on Grammar Homework that will be available either at the bookstore or in the DMCL office.

Quizzes

There will be periodic vocabulary and unit quizzes at times indicated on the syllabus.

Homework

There will be written homework as well as work on the CD-ROM that will need to be printed off for class.

Grades

Your grade in the course will be based on the following scale:

  • 30% Midterm and final
  • 35% Homework
  • 25% Quizzes and unit tests
  • 10% Class performance
