Modes of InstructionIn a classroom setting, instruction will consist of brief lectures, written and oral actitivies, and discussions. Questions and comments also play a significant role.
Students, on the other hand, will also be expected to prepare on a weekly basis for the upcoming class by reading and studying assigned text material. In addition to the three hour weekly classes, it is expected that students will have to spend a minimum of three hours per week on independent study to further cement the acquisition of German lessons. The teacher will then verify the understanding of new structures and reading passages in class and further clarify necessary points.

Modes of EvaluationA student must successfully complete all segments of a subject in order to earn a passing grade. Students who have not passed the term work may not be permitted to write the final assignment/examination. For further information on evaluation and academic standing, see the Academic Policy available at Registration.
Grading is based on the following marking scheme:
Final Exam 15% oralNote: all students must pass the term work to participate in the final exam (oral and written). In addition, students must pass both the oral final exam and the written final exam to pass the course. Failing either the oral or written exam components will result in an "F" for the course.
AppealsStudents should keep all assignments (including drafts and outlines) and exercises until they receive their final grade.
Students may appeal any final grade in a subject or any decision by the College, following the recommendation of a Promotion Committee, with respect to the student's academic standing, continuation or status in a program, School, Faculty or the College. It is the policy of the College that a student who invokes this appeal process will be given a fair hearing. For further information on appeals, please see Section 12 of the Academic Policy Handbook.
