German Service Learning

In languages, practice makes perfect. In German we say: "Übung macht den Meister." The more you practice your speaking and listening skills, the better you will get. It is also true that we learn best by doing. That is why we have adopted a "Service Learning Component" in our German 305 Oral Communications course. This course gives students the opportunity to work outside the classroom in a variety of service learning opportunities. Students actively take part in and help with these activities, report back to the class about their experience (in German), and write short summaries. By getting active in the community, students use their German to communicate in real situations and really get to know the German community in Indianapolis. Students learn by helping, and help while learning all the while developing and practicing skills in German and in good citizenry.
