GERN 122L5 - Beginning German | GEKH & GELB


The goals of the two-course Beginning German sequence are the development of oral and written communication through the use of verbal and nonverbal symbols. The emphasis is on communicative competence (both spoken and written) through the mastery of vocabulary and grammar appropriate to given communicational situations. Besides gaining communicative skills in German, the student can expect to gain some familiarity with modern German culture.

Credit 5 hrs
Grade Mode Normal (A-F)

Prerequisite(s) GERN 121L5  or by placement examination

The second-semester course of Beginning German satisfies the outcome requirements for Foreign Language courses. To be able to communicate in German and appreciate linguistic and cultural similarities and difference, GERN 122L5 students learn to produce through speaking and writing, and to understand through reading and listening, the elements of their German language necessary to be able to function at a basic level in a German-speaking environment. Instruction in GERN 122L5 provides examples of speaking and writing that native speakers use to accomplish real tasks; students learn to master these structures while developing a new perspective on their own language, and an appreciation of a foreign cultural viewpoint.
