Language Sector > Module
This module continues along the track established by Conversational German 1 and 2.

The cohort of the current iteration of Conversational German has asked to focus on speaking practice, so specific topics of instruction will be determined on an ad hoc basis. Any topics listed in the Conversational German 1 and 2 modules that have not yet been covered will be discussed, but the instructor will also introduce new subject matter. Possible subjects, time permitting, include:

Session Breakdown:

1. Imperatives and Requests

2. Separable Prefixes

3. The Conversational Past tense (The Present Perfect)

4. Irregular and Strong Verbs

5. Meals and Evening Activities

6. Travel Vocabulary

7. Vacation

8. Holidays and Festivals

Note: This list is not meant to be exhaustive and can change depending on student wishes.

Required Texts

As in previous Conversational German modules, we will use the online (and free) German textbook Deutsch im Blick developed by the University of Texas (https://coerll.utexas.edu/dib/). This textbook is used mostly for structuring purposes, since a lot of material will be developed by the instructor before each session.
So that you have material for conversation practice, each session will be accompanied by a short, one-page vocabulary list in the form of a PDF document.
The online dictionary for the course is Leo (https://dict.leo.org/german-english/).
