Final Report on the Undergraduate German Language Program at Middlebury College, Summer 1977.
Schneider, Gerd K.
This report describes the seven-week program of the first-, second-, and third-year German language courses taught at Middlebury College during the summer of 1977. This was an intensive program with at least four hours of formal classroom instruction per day. The high scores achieved on the MLA-Cooperative Foreign Language Tests, Forms LA and MA, and on the MLA-Cooperative Foreign Language Proficiency Test demonstrate that a program of this nature can be very successful. Appended to this report are the structures of courses and modules for the first, second, third, and fourth year of German for the summer of 1978, and a list of the the textbooks to be used at these four levels. It may be difficult to duplicate the program entirely at another institution; the report can, however, aid interested teachers in designing a similar total immersion language training program.
