Homework for Wednesday Oct 17, 2007

1. Translate the first and the second paragraph of Hawking’s Public Attitudes towards Science into perfect idiomatic German. (From “Whether we like it or not..” to “ .. slow down the rate of change.” Lines 1 to 22 on the paper sheet handed out in class. )

2. Read the whole text and ask yourself whether it is an expository text type or an argumentative text type (which you don’t know yet theoretically but probably intuitively ☺ ).

Additional task (voluntary):

3. Those of you who want to prepare for what we are going to do on Wednesday might look at the questions on the work sheet. That is, of course, NOT homework, but it will help you to understand what we are going to do.
