English Language Requirements
Students registering in post-secondary level courses (numbered 100 to 499) will be required to meet the English language entrance proficiency requirements. Students in ESL or the University Foundations programs can register in those courses identified in the University Foundations program with lower levels of language proficiency.
GERM 1013 credits
Beginner's German I
This course is designed for students who have little or no prior knowledge of the German language. Taking full advantage of new media and technology, this course provides a wide range of learning environments, and encourages students to develop active and creative language skills. By the end of this course students should be able to communicate accurately in a variety of everyday situations, speak about past events, and express ideas/opinions in German. Students who already have some knowledge of German (from home or from school) are encouraged to challenge this course, and/or to take a higher level course.
GERM 1023 credits
Beginner's German II
Prerequisite(s): GERM 101 or equivalent
This course is designed for students who have completed GERM 101 or equivalent, and extends and expands upon the communicative targets laid out in GERM 101. In particular, in this course students continue to build on acquiring a basic fluency in different communicative contexts. Also, an increased emphasis is placed on developing spoken German. By the end of this course students should have learned to communicate with basic fluency in a variety of different contexts; to use all of the major indicative tenses (i.e., to communicate about events in all different time frames); and to argue points of view, and to provide reasoned support for oneâ€™s argument, in German. Students who already have some high school German (or have learned German at home) may register without GERM 101 with instructorâ€™s permission.
