    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives a solid German foundation. There is a lot of interaction in this course, so it is not recommended for people with social anxiety.

    Course highlights:

    The workload is a lot, but you will get out of this course what you put into into it. Frau Wagenleiter is definitely less book based than Professor Glowa.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice vocabulary with friends and form study groups. This also helps with practicing for projects. Play games and have casual conversation outside of class, as this will help you in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Frau Wagenleiter was incredibly understanding and empathetic. As long as you took the time to sit down and explain what your problem was, she was more than willing to help in any way she could. She encouraged students to visit her in her office to ask questions, or just to practice. At the end of the course there is a verbal german exam where students must write, memorize, and recite a german short story in front of the class. Frau Wagenleiter was always available to help edit your story and go over pronunciation. She also encouraged us to meet with her to practice reading the story to help with nerves. It was a lot easier to do in front of the class after that.

    Course highlights:

    This was a fun course and the other students made it a memorable experience. It allowed for a lot more creativity than other classes because as long as you can answer the question, you can say anything you want. We also played several games to encourage comprehension and daily broke up into groups to practice together.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Vocabulary is important. Always have flashcards handy, and revisit previous vocabulary sections so that the words will be easily recognizable when they show up again in class and in the text. Always do the homework. It may seem easy to forget and show up to class without it, but doing the homework gives you a head start on the next class. Don't be afraid to speak up. The best practice you can get is in trying and messing up. Everyone is there to learn, so use the opportunity to your advantage. Don't forget to do the online homework in time. It doesn't come up a lot in class, but it is good practice and can help if you work on the sections that correspond with what part of the book you are on in class.
