As you can tell, I suck at the German, despite the fact that it claims one quarter of my ancestry. But one of these days I would like to correct this. However, I don't have much in the way of room open in my schedule for next quarter. Fortunately GERMAN 150 exists, which would enable me to watch movies and magically learn to speak German, all while only taking a 2 credit class with no written work. This may or may not be too good to be true, so I'm turning to you fine folks to advise me in this regard. Has anyone here taken 150? If so, does it require a bit of pre-existing German to do decently in? And does it allow a fella to go on to 102 or another higher-level class for Winter quarter? And does the class consist of watching schiesse videos* or just wholesome kiddie German flicks (kinderfilmenflickenflargen, or something like that)? Any advice would be most appreciated.
