Why IMPULS DEUTSCH?

  • Multiple Perspectives: IMPULS DEUTSCH offers content from multiple disciplines, designed specifically to appeal to diverse student populations. Students will engage with fresh content from the arts, humanities, and STEM fields, while building transferrable, real-world skills. They will connect with topics concerning all people on an existential level.
  • Inclusiveness: IMPULS DEUTSCH sees its students and instructors as belonging to the German-speaking community. In this view, its interaction with and depiction of people is purposely sensitive to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, and dis/ability.
  • Flipped classroom: IMPULS DEUTSCH fully incorporates the flipped classroom approach into the three principal student components: LERNEN, MACHEN, and ZEIGEN. The success of the class depends on students coming to class prepared to learn with their fellow learners.
  • Flexibility: Vertiefungsstunden are special units that do not introduce new grammar. They can be left out to build flexibility into your syllabus, or they can be included to reinforce grammar while engaging with new material.
  • Attitude: Learning German should be fun. IMPULS DEUTSCH elevates its tone in line with the maturity level of college students and instructors. Students and the issues they face are taken very seriously, but, at the same time, our hope is that you will appreciate the elements of humor that have been built into IMPULS DEUTSCH.
  • Interactive: The philosophy of Communicative Language Teaching serves as the backbone to this series. Students are presented with multiple ways of putting what they have learned and practiced into action. Whether your class is online or face-to-face, every lesson in IMPULS DEUTSCH stresses meaningful interaction, the foundation of language learning.

Blogs aus Deutschland

While working with IMPULS DEUTSCH 1, you will follow U.S. Students during their study abroad experience in Germany. Have a look at the students below. Read the key information about them, and choose a student you would like to follow for the rest of the year. Every time a Blog aus Deutschland assignment appears in the workbook, you will always go back to the same student you selected today, and will answer questions about their life and adventures in Germany.

Impuls Deutsch Grant for Amplifying Voices in German Studies

IMPULS DEUTSCH celebrates diversity, not only by showcasing a wide range of racial, ethnic and religious groups, but also the LGBTQ+ community, diverse gender identities, and people with dis/ability. This is not only an acknowledgement of the diversity within the German-speaking countries, but also an acknowledgement of our instructors and students around the world.

To bring more inclusiveness into the classroom, we created the IMPULS DEUTSCH Grant for Amplifying Voices in German Studies. The grant aims to support German departments and instructors in bringing German speakers from either a) traditionally marginalized groups or b) other professional disciplines to the campus.
