German 503 – A Student’s Perspective

Project-based learning with SLLLC

German 503 is a project-based course. With the academic experience you have gained so far, you are entrusted to develop and carry out a semester-long project linked to languages. The choice of subject is yours, as long as it can be made into a teaching tool for German students. Let your curiosity run free! The beauty of this course is that it enables you to have an impact. Through a collaboration with German 333, you have the opportunity to use your teaching tool twice and receive constructive feedback on it.

Being in a course where the process is as valued as the end result brings forth a sense of pride and ownership towards the project itself but also towards the journey through its development. To use your project in a real-life setting is sure to make you realize how far you have come since your initial idea and feel that your project has a concrete purpose. This course is an opportunity to fully function in an academic setting in German, therefore helping solidify your foundation of the language and improve fluency.
