This course is designed for students with little or no knowledge of German. Students learn German speaking, listening, writing, reading, and comprehension skills within the cultural context of Europe today. The course, along with German 203, will enable students to speak and write simple German in a range of everyday situations.

Welcome to German 203: Introductory German II, a continuation of Athabasca University’s German 202. This course is intended for students who have completed German 202, one semester of university German, or the equivalent. In this course you will reinforce and expand the speaking, listening, writing and reading skills you gained in German 202. On the cultural side, the Fokus section at the end of each chapter in the textbook Wie geht’s? features short literary texts to introduce you to important German authors.
German 302: Intermediate German I is a three-credit course. According to your individualized-study course contract, you have six months to complete it. We advise you to follow the study schedule included in this Student Manual. If you follow the study schedule, you will have no difficulty in completing the course requirements within the six-month period. However, if you find that you cannot complete the course in this time, consult the current Athabasca University Calendar for information on obtaining an extension to your course contract.

This course is designed to further develop students’ reading, writing, speaking and listening skills through the use of authentic materials (newspaper articles, letters, interviews, biographies, advertisements, essays, poems, cartoons and short fiction).
