Discussion-based
This module continues along the track established by Conversational German modules 1-3.

The current iteration of Conversational German 4 continues to focus on speaking practice, which means that (as with Conversational German 3) the instructor determines specific topics on an ad hoc basis. If we have not yet covered topics listed in previous modules, we will cover them in this session while the instructor concomitantly introduces new subject matter. Possible subjects include:

Session Breakdown:

1. The Comparative and Superlative

2. Careers and Dream Jobs

3. Possessive Adjectives

4. Family Vocabulary

5. Months and Seasons

6. A Review: The Conversational Past

7. Separable Prefixes

8. Gesundheit

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/).
