Auf Deutsch: Communicating in German Across Cultures (for Lynne)
It may be interesting.
"In this intensive course we will use the German language to learn about each other and develop an understanding of different cultural values in both modern Germany and around the world. In the process of acquiring basic language skills in German, you will be using them to construct personal or virtual profiles within the context of your own culture and society. At the same time, you will compare your cultural attitudes and Weltanschauung with those represented through the lives of contemporary German personalities, actors, artists and politicians.
Designed for a multicultural and multilingual audience, this Elementary German course takes a ground zero approach to your knowledge of German language, culture and society. However, this course will also offer opportunities for advanced students and native speakers to interact with each other and with course participants on topics related to e.g. hobbies, families, nutrition, professions and vacation. We will also be polling your attitudes towards issues in Germany related to politics, the environment and immigration. "
