GRMN 309* (continuing from GRMN 308*) provides a survey of the major historical and cultural developments that have continued to shape the identities of the three German-speaking countries into the twenty-first century. The course builds systematically on participants' previous linguistic attainments, and classwork includes regular exercises in translation of German texts as well as intensive practice in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. A tutorial provides an individualized review of formal grammar. (Prerequisite: GRMN 202* or equivalent. Exclusion: GRMN 205.)
