Bettina is a wonderful professor and is very enthusiastic about the course material. Super interesting course and I really enjoyed how we touched many different aspects of 1920s Germany: politics, art history, film, economy, etc. We also watched a show for the class (Babylon Berlin on netflix) that I really liked. Overall great class and I would 100% take again.

Bettina is one of my favorite professors at Middlebury! She is friendly and enthusiastic and leads a great discussion. I have taken 2 400 level courses with her and they were both lively, discussion-based, and fun. Homework was usually a reading before each class, with occasional essays/ projects sprinkled in. Bettina is super accessible! One time when I couldn't make it to office hours she scheduled a meeting with me on zoom after dinner and explained a grammar concept I was having trouble with (that was out of the scope of the class!). She is super dedicated to helping you succeed. Workload wise, I think the higher level German classes have been some of the more chill classes I've taken at Midd, although I did find the final paper a little bit daunting.

Bettina is an excellent German teacher! She truly cares about her students and is very accommodating. The homework is a lot, but that is expected when learning another language at midd. The German department is so friendly. Highly recommend.
