Online learning offers beginning German language course

Western Carolina University’s Office of Professional Growth and Enrichment will offer a 6-week online beginning German language course Feb. 3 through March 13.

“This is a self-contained, conversation-based course is designed for adults and built around high-quality, original electronic materials,” said Will Lehman, associate professor of German and course instructor.

Topics to be covered include how to make formal and informal introductions, origins and home towns, shopping, traveling, eating, clothing and colors, among others. Lehman designed the electronic materials himself and they will be available to enrolled students at no additional cost.

Students will practice grammar individually through the online system, but there also will be optional bi-weekly opportunities for conversation practice with Lehman and other students through live video technology.

Registration is $79.  For more information and to register, go to learn.wcu.edu/language or call 828-227-7397.
