GER 2111 - Business German (4th Year)
Introductory course preparing students to function in business-related communicative situations, with an emphasis on language skills necessary for work in areas such as marketing and finance. Prerequisites: GER 010. This course prepares students to participate in German in business-related communicative situations, both orally and in writing. We cover topics in business and economics while improving the four language skills (reading, listening, speaking, and writing) and addressing aspects of intercultural communication, including analysis of cultural differences in business etiquette and practices between the U.S. and the German-speaking countries. To learn about such aspects, we work with authentic texts, websites, and video relating to business contexts, and we visit "local" institutions (e.g., German embassy). Students apply newly gained knowledge and proficiency in discussions, presentations, debates, interviews, and practical writing tasks such as composing their German resume and a letter of application.
