Mittendrin is an intermediate-level German program with a unique regional focus designed to promote communicative and cultural competence.
Carefully chosen reading and listening texts in each chapter introduce students to the multifaceted culture of German-speaking Europe and provide the basis for comprehension activities, vocabulary acquisition, speaking and discussion opportunities, and research and writing assignments. Mittendrin develops skills for immediate practical usage while at the same time providing students with a solid foundation for further study.
