Dr. Angelica Browne's German 201 Student Projects

Fall 2016

As their final projects for German 201, students designed and presented travel brochures/videos under a general heading "Ein etwas anderer Reiseführer durch deutschsprachige Länder" (A Somewhat Different Travel Guide through German-Speaking Countries). The topics covered the whole spectrum of German-speaking culture ranging from high Art and music to tasty traditional foods such as currywurst and Kartoffelsalat, from submarines to bridges, from Mozart and Beethoven to Berlin’s Berhain nightclub. Below are some highlights.

Fall 2013


Sonnenstrahlen und Schatten:

Allerlei zum Leben und zur Liebe aus CalPoly

Sunbeams and Shadows: A Potpourri on Life and Love from CalPoly

“This video “Sunbeams and Shadows: A Potpourri on Life and Love from CalPoly” is a product of the creativity and imagination of our German 201 language course at CalPoly.  It highlights and contrasts the rich variety of German cultural expression, encompassing pathos and humor, tragedy and farce, love and the search for the meaning of life.  I recorded my students reading texts chosen by them as a part of their final oral examination in the Fall 2013. Enjoy!

Special thanks to Alex Thomas for his technical expertise in creating this video as well as his pertinent input in the editing process.”
