Layered Berlin

GERM 264
Berlin, Germany
Prof: Paul Youngman

This intensive language course offers students an extended period of direct exposure to the language, culture, and people of Germany. Students immerse themselves in the culturally rich environs of Berlin, improving their language skills through extensive and innovative language instruction and literary study. Students also gain greater understanding of German history and contemporary culture through lectures by native authorities and tours of museums and churches, and through their contact with their host families as well as native German university students.
