Salzburg Summer II Advanced German:
Learning German in Salzburg, Austria allows students in this course a special opportunity to learn German while immersed in the local culture. Students will have the opportunity to participate in excursions, meet with local people, and get to know German-speaking culture up close. The six-week summer course will culminate in special projects, which will showcase each student’s research into a local group, institution, or tradition. The instructors will facilitate contacts with the local community, helping students to identify specific topics of special interest to them (for example, soccer, local elections or political parties, commemoration of World War I, coffeehouse culture). Classroom work will focus on increasing students' proficiency in German through writing, speaking, listening, and reading, in tandem with their immersion in the local community. Prerequisite: GRM 202 or equivalent.
