German Language Skills 1

This course is designed to develop the four skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing contemporary German within a cultural framework. People today require more than one language to meet the needs of a changing world. Modern communications, increased world travel, the economic interdependence of nations, and immigration trends are all contributing factors. This course will emphasize functional fluency and provide opportunities for development of language skills. Topics and practical situations dealt with are of particular interest to those who need to get along in a German-speaking country (travelling, visiting acquaintances, conducting business, etc.)
