Julia Goetze's current research focuses on second language acquisition and applied linguistics.

She is particularly interested in the interrelationship of cognition, affect, and behavior in the foreign and second language classroom and their effects on language learning and teaching. Goetze's broader research interests are very interdisciplinary and include language teacher psychology, emotions in the foreign and second language classroom, foreign language pedagogy, as well as research methodology.

Fall 2018 Courses

Basic German: Core Course I (German 101D)

Introductory program; no previous German required. Students will develop their competence in listening, speaking, reading, and writing German by means of interpersonal, interpretive and presentational communicative practice. This first course serves as an introduction to German grammar and culture; goals range from developing the communicative skills necessary to find an apartment to being able to read modern German poetry. Students will learn how to apply their knowledge of basic cases and tenses in order to hold a conversation or write a letter describing their interests, family, goals, routines, etc. and to discover personal information about others.

    Advanced German: Core Course V (German 302D)

    Refinement and expansion of German communication skills (speaking, listening, writing, reading), deepening understanding of German grammatical structures, acquisition of more sophisticated and varied vocabulary, introduction to stylistics through discussion and analysis of literary and non-literary texts. In addition to the regular class meetings, students should sign up for a twice-weekly subsection.
