I didn't take a WAC course with Tokofsky. I went on the summer travel study program to Vienna, Munich, and Berlin, and took German 102 (but this doesn't give that option to select). The Vienna, Munich, Berlin program is amazing. Every student who has the opportunity to go should do it. I took German language on the trip, but you don't even need to do that because Tokofsky teaches two GE courses in English. The one I took was German 102, which is about art during the 20th century. I wasn't really that interested in art, but he uses art to talk about the transformation of Vienna, about the Nazis and what they did (they didn't like modern art!), and about Berlin and the changes in the world. The whole experience was really cool - after lecture we would go out and see the very stuff he was talking about. Now I can go to a museum and really feel like I understand what's going on. Tokofsky is also really into taking long walks through the cities and pointing out things. It's like being on a constant guided tour, which can get tiring (we started calling them Tokofsky's death marches), but looking back I really appreciate it. And best of all, Tokofsky (and Stevens, the other professor) like to hang out at pubs with the students after class time, and they can be pretty fun.
