Description

All PCC German courses are taught using an immersion method. The objective of all German courses at PCC is to help students to develop communicative competence and proficiency in comprehension, speaking, reading and writing German as well as cultural awareness. Assessment is based on consistent attendance, active student participation, and written and oral assignments.

There are no requirements or prerequisites for entry into the first term of first year German. However, the student should read the German course descriptions for other German courses. Students who have studied a language before and are unsure of their placement are encouraged to consult with a German teacher since they will not be admitted to a course if their skill level is too advanced for that course.

All students who enroll in world language classes (including those on the waiting list) are expected to attend class the first day when material essential for successful completion of the course will be presented. Students who do not attend the first class session may be replaced by those who do attend.
