German Refresher Workshop during Winter Break

The German for Translation Refresher Workshop at CST during the January Interterm is scheduled to be held Monday through Friday afternoons, January 5-16, 2015 from 1:00-4:30 pm for $260.00 per student.  Registration is through CST.  No audits are permitted.

The focus of the course is to refresh one’s beginning knowledge of German in order to learn strategies for reading scholarly work in preparation for the language examinations at CST and CGU.  Actual texts from authors in the students’ subject areas are used for learning the syntax and grammar of German.  Techniques for learning both vocabulary and the navigation of a dictionary of at least 1600 pages help students move quickly through the language.  An examination is given on the last day of the workshop.

Additionally, there is a more thorough seven-week beginning workshop offered at CGU during the July-August module each summer.  Both courses are taught by Dr. Carolyn Wolf Spanier-Ladwig, Retired Professor of German from Mt. San Antonio College and Retired Teacher of German from Claremont High School.
