This is the second of the two-course sequence of elementary German that explores the roles and group affiliations that contribute to the identity formation of young adults in the United States and the German-speaking world. Specifically, students will examine the following three roles in 102, devoting 4-5 weeks to each: The young adult as (1) a consumer; (2) a traveler/tourist; and (3) a citizen. Students will use a textbook and supplemental materials to acquire the language necessary to communicate meaningfully about each topic. Integrated into the four regularly scheduled class sessions is one additional practice session a week that focuses on using newly learned concepts in conversational settings. Through this process of examining identity formation, students in this course, together with its prerequisite, German 101, will develop a solid foundation in speaking, writing, reading, and understanding German and life in German-speaking countries.
