Description

Elective Course


In this course, students practice translating from English to German using a variety of texts written in different genres. These texts on contemporary life in German-speaking countries and Hong Kong cover topics like culture, politics, and social life.  The insights students gain from reading these texts will enable them to draw inter-cultural comparisons between German-speaking cultures and their own. Students will share their work with their peers to encourage in-class discussion and peer review.
