Learning outcomes:
The courses "French 1" and "French 2" are based on each other. In the course of the two modules mentioned above, students will improve their professional and technical French allowing them to advance from entry level B1 to level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
In the "French I" module, students will develop, test and expand their language skills and knowledge in a pragmatic-functional manner and thus improve their oral and written communication skills in job-specific situations. At the same time, they will also develop their ability to express their opinions. We will focus on speaking, listening comprehension and writing skills.
Using an intercultural approach, students will also develop an understanding of the differences in international working environments, especially in francophone countries and thus, improve their intercultural competence.
