Hi Julie: I majored in Secondary Education focusing in Spanish and Modern 
Languages, concentrating in Spanish and German. My instructors in my classes 
were good enough to either:
1. Sit and describe the movie to me (in English) and let me take the movie 
home to decifer the German.
2. Work with me one on one if I had difficulties understanding something. 
They would also describe any artwork or visual things that came up in class. 
My professors were my friends-- they enjoyed having me and my dog in class 
and were always willing to help. I'd always go in early for a meeting so 
they could get to know my dog and me.
I wish you luck in your German class this Fall. If you have any more 
questions, please don't hesitate to bring them to the list. I've found 
everyone here extremely helpful.
Hope Paulos
