Objective: 

To become familiar with enough German vocabulary and grammar (through listening and reading) to use the language actively (speaking and writing) in a selection of real-life situations. The focus of the class is on using German as natives do in everyday life with special attention given to placing activities and information in a cultural context, which changes with each chapter in the text.
