Students review basic German as well as learn more vocabulary and grammatical principles through German Märchen (fairy tales). Students hear, read, speak, and write basic German in a context that is cheery rather than Grimm. This course features interactive elements: live instructor-led orientations and weekly lesson review activities, live one-on-one speaking appointments, a student discussion board, and an instructor-hosted wiki. There are specific emphases on speaking, comprehension, reading, and writing. This is the second course in a four-part German series (GERM 041, 043, 051, and 053) and is a continuation of First-Year German, Part 1 (GERM 041).
