Have you ever heard of BMW, Audi, SAP, Siemens, and Mercedes?
Germany is the fifth largest trading partner with the USA, and a close
political ally in Central Europe. Many German companies have branches in the
US, providing for a large job market here and abroad. Of course there are also
the philosophers, writers, and artists who came from German speaking countries
and shaped Western thought and expression, not to speak of Germany’s tumultuous
history making it the infamous center of 20th century global conflicts.
Whether you are interested in business, natural sciences, computer technology,
politics, social sciences, the arts, or the humanities, a knowledge of the
German language and culture will broaden your understanding and give you an
edge in any future career.
Our instructors are dedicated to teaching German Language and
Culture in a meaningful and relevant context that helps students to progress
quickly in the four areas of language acquisition (listening, speaking, reading,
writing), while preparing them to interact competently with German speaking peoples
and cultures. The use of Internet technologies aids us in achieving this goal
by making language learning more effective, interesting, and enjoyable.
