Dr. Christiane Staninger
Summer Program, June - July 2013
Salzburg, with a population of 150,000, is the fourth largest city in Austria. It is located on the banks of the Salzach River at the northern border of the Alps. Unspoilt countryside, natural attractions such as the Hohe Tauern National Park, the beauty of the "Baroque Jewel" of the old town and the surrounding communities all offer visitors enchanting variety.
German 201 completes the core language sequences of introductory German, emphasizing grammatical exactness to advance communication. Students who have already completed GERM 201 may enroll in GERM 202 during this summer course abroad.
During the first week of this course, students would stay with families in Eichstätt, Bavaria, Germany. Eichstätt is the home of the Katholische Universität, the only Roman Catholic university in the German-speaking world. The students would conclude the course in nearby Salzburg, Austria, a city which offers something of interest for all students: music, art, water sports, history, mountaineering, hiking, and a rich tradition of Roman Catholicism. This course would expose them to the culture, language, and regional accents of Germany and Austria. The class in Salzburg and environs has been offered with great success for many years and has received consistently excellent reviews from students who participated.
