Languages for Reading Purposes

These 8-week, non-credit courses are intended for graduate students and other researchers who need to consult texts in French and German and/or who need to satisfy reading knowledge requirements for graduate and professional programs. Students will gain reading skills through guided in-class work, supplemented by intensive independent study of necessary grammar, and the opportunity to apply these skills to an individualized project.

  • The French and German sections meet three times a week for six weeks. Instructors available for consultation for an additional 2 weeks.

The classroom portion of the program runs May 17 through June 29, 2017.  Instructors will be available for individual consultation until July 14. For more information call 919-684-5375 or send an e-mail to Kim Price at kprice@duke.edu.
