This course is the second half of the two-part course sequence at Level II. The course is organized topically to familiarize students with contemporary life in the German-speaking world. In Intensive Intermediate, students explore the following themes: • Nature, people, environment • Fairy tales • The German-speaking world from a view of a foreigner The primary text type that is used at this level to explore each theme is the story, — personal, public and literary stories. Students typically encounter each text first in class and then engage it further out of class in preparation for subsequent in-depth thematic discussions in class. Class discussions often involve role play and/or group work as a way to enhance conversational and negotiating abilities. The course’s emphasis on improving students ability to narrate, compare and contrast, express opinions, and establish causal relationships in speaking and writing lays the groundwork for the historical treatment of stories and histories in Level III. By the end of the level II students • will have a good understanding of contemporary life in the German-speaking world with some in-depth knowledge of major social, political and cultural issues; • will be able to comprehend authentic materials (video, native speaker conversation) with global comprehension and some fine point knowledge analysis; • will be able to produce spoken and written discourse from description to narration, to formulation of argument and/or hypothesis, incorporating an increasing variety of style and complexity.

Part 2 of Level I. The two-course sequence of Level I introduces students to various aspects of the German-speaking world as a way of enabling them to begin building communicative abilities in German in all four language modalities: reading, listening, writing, and speaking. Instruction proceeds from guided to more creative and independent work. The courses incorporate a variety of activities that are based on a range of topics, text types, and different socio-cultural situations. Through diverse collaborative and individual tasks, students begin to find personal forms of expression that are based on these materials. Students learn basic strategies for reading, listening, and writing, and for participating in every-day conversations. In the process they become familiar with and learn to use with some confidence the major sentence patterns and grammatical features of German as well as high-frequency vocabulary of everyday life. Integration of current technology (e.g., the Internet, e-mail, video) familiarizes students with the German-speaking world while at the same time enhancing language learning.

The Problem of God introduces students to the study of religion and theology, broadly understood. Our aim in the course is not only to introduce students to different religious traditions and perspectives, but, as the title of the course suggests, to encourage critical reflection on some of the most challenging questions relating to religious commitment. In other words, the goal of the course is not only to help students learn about religious traditions, but to reflect critically on what it means to be a religious person, what it means to study religion and theology, and what the significance of religious belief is. It is one of two courses (along with IBL) that fulfill the first Theology course requirement at Georgetown, and the importance of promoting critical reflection on religious belief through this requirement has taken on new meaning in a post-9/11 world, in which religious literacy and understanding are more important than they have ever been. Mirroring the diversity of our faculty, the course is taught in a diverse number of ways, including a variety of different primary texts and focusing on a variety of significant questions relating to religion and theology. Georgetown graduates consistently report that The Problem of God was one of the most important courses that they took during their time at Georgetown.

Communication shapes our lives – personal, professional, and political. Communication skills are also highly correlated with college and professional success: critical thinking, argument, writing, perspective-taking, and research skills are all foundational to a liberal arts education and life beyond college. The objective of this course is to help students develop these essential skills through an introduction to the principles and practices of public discourse: advocacy, argument, and speaking. Over the course of three weeks, students will research, build, and present a persuasive case on a civic issue. Through exercises, workshops, and assignments, students will study and apply theory and develop essential research, critical thinking, speaking, and writing skills. With the increasing use of remote technologies in interviewing, business, and politics, this course provides an opportunity for students to actively apply and build theory and practice in effective professional online communication. The University of Chicago has long been a prominent proponent of free expression, which depends on the ability to engage in productive public discourse and on the ability to open up public space so that others can also speak freely. This course extends that tradition by preparing students to actively engage in the public sphere.
