Literature Course in Autumn 2018

German Modernist Literature I: Expressionism and Franz Kafka

Language requirements: intermediate to good German skills (min. B 1.2 level); also suitable for native speakers.

Designed for German learners with an interest in literature, this course has a dual objective. Under expert guidance, you will learn about the development of modern German literature through studying easier and more advanced works of 20th century German literature in the original. At the same time, you will improve your written and oral German language skills. Participants significantly improve their vocabulary and grasp of German sentence structure, while discussing literature and learning to write short texts. The course focuses on oral and written work around issues of text comprehension and interpretation.

German expressionism radically broke with literary traditions. Its distinctive characteristics—direct confrontation of the senses with the everyday world, extreme expression of emotions, free experimentation with linguistic forms—made expressionism the precursor of literary modernism.

Meanwhile, Franz Kafka took the opposite approach. With his ironic, sobering distance from the world of emotions, and his extreme linguistic rigor, he developed into a modern classicist.

The course focuses on the onset of modernism through the convention-shattering diversity of expressionism and Kafka’s timeless clarity.

Grammar course

Students regularly ask how best to fill gaps in their grammar skills, or if we can review specific topics with them. Since the standard course format allows for only limited digression, we have designed special Focus Courses to address these issues.

The grammar courses offer you:

  • comprehensive review of specific grammar concepts;
  • an overview of interconnecting relationships between grammar concepts;
  • written and oral practice of grammar concepts.

Our focus courses are designed for students of all levels from A2.1 upward, and are structured on the “building-block” principle. In other words, while the course covers all aspects of grammar from A1 to C1, you select grammar units to suit your specific needs.

Theater course

Of course, this course does not teach you to be “German”. But through the techniques of improvisational theatre, one learns to speak German actively and spontaneously and to interact with Germans.

While speaking and theatre play are in the focus of the course, but also texts to understand and write (with techniques of creative writing) are part of it. From the context that we create together at the theatre Games, the vocabulary and grammar work that the students need is specific.

The course is for those who may feel that the classic DaF method does not work for them, and for anyone who just wants to try something new. Connecting body and language has helped many students with learning and memory. You’ll need to be open to new methods and enjoy working in pairs or groups.
