Placement Information for Fall 2017 GERM Courses

GERM 102

GERM 102 presumes no knowledge of the German language and will be for all students who have not taken BC grade 12 German or its equivalent.

GERM 103 

GERM 103 is built on the language presented in GERM 102 and continues to emphasize everyday communication. German 103 is intended for students who have completed the prerequisite GERM 102, or who have an equivalent proficiency in the language. Since GERM 103 continues the work of GERM 102, it should be taken, wherever possible, in the term immediately following GERM 102.

GERM 201

GERM 201 continues the work of GERM 103 and to develop basic communication skills in German. GERM 201 is intended for students who have completed the prerequisite GERM 103, or who have an equivalent proficiency (A1 level). 

GERM 300

GERM 300 is the continuation of GERM 202. 

Students who are unsure about their level or background in German should attend a placement interview with the course instructor before they register for courses.
