Introductory message - German
Welcome to GER 105. By contacting me, you have already done just what needs to be done at this point. For these first few days I will just be collecting my students' e-mail addresses. Then this weekend I will put together a group mailing list so that I can send information to everyone at once instead of a eight or ten individual messages. I hope to start sending instructional information by Monday. In the meantime, read my message about getting started in German and familiarize yourself with the variety of materials I have put online for you.
I am also mailing a box of instructional audio tapes to Christine in Cowan 305, so you will be able to pick up a tape for your first lesson early next week.
Don't fret if you are confused at this point. It's to be expected, and I have about a week of orientation written into the schedule. We'll work on things bit by bit, and in a couple of weeks everything should be working smoothly.
