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.
