Taking advantage of the opportunities outside of class to speak German will count towards making up unexcused absences (German Film Series, German Table, etc.). Attendance alone will not guarantee a good grade. C. Participation: Class attendance should not be confused with participation. Participation means being involved in classroom activities.
