Participants in this course will agree to speak only German for a specified amount of time, from 48 hours to three weeks. Students are required to participate in organized events and activities including films, tasks such as cooking or clean-up, discussion, and games, all facilitating student communication in German. Some quiet study and reading periods will allow consolidation of vocabulary gains and help relieve stress, a natural and necessary component of total immersion. The total immersion experience is highly intense and sometimes uncomfortable, but often produces remarkable results in terms of increased fluency.
