Course Offerings Fall Term 2022-2023

Language Courses in Fall Semester 2022:

We are offering all our regular German language courses from German 101 (Beginning German 1) to German 202 (Intermediate German 2) this fall. Note: There is no GER 103 anymore! The new sequence is 101 – 102 – 201 – 202.

If you are not sure, which one you should take, check out our placement guide here: https://www.german.pitt.edu/curriculum/language-placement.

In German 101-201, we are working with the new textbook series Impuls Deutsch.

In German 202, we are continuing with Netzwerk B1.

All the textbooks will be supplemented by a variety of authentic materials, e.g. music, websites, and videos.

If you are taking one of our intermediate-level courses, you will also read a short book, either Inge Scholl’s Die weiße Rose, about a resistance group in the Third Reich, or Otfried Preussler’s Krabat, which is a fantasy story based on an old folk tale. (Both books have been edited for language learners.)

Of course there will also be a project again! In the past, project themes have included political parties in Germany, regions of the German-speaking world, the situation of refugees in Germany and the US, and adaptations of well-known German fairy tales.
