Module content:
The German Course builds on the individual knowledge of the students.
Topics may be:
- Development of simple language structures that make it easier for course participants to deal with simple everyday and professional situations, such as contacting, greeting, introducing yourself and others
- Talk about the job, leisure activities and preferences
- Inquire about the condition
- General conversations (e.g. thank you, apologize, say goodbye)
- Numbers
- Time
- Informal email correspondence
- Directions
- Communication on the phone
- General speech
- Inquire and provide information
- Basic grammar structures are developed that are based on communicative needs (conjugation of regular verbs, forms of address, negation ...)
- The basic vocabulary should be expanded independently by the students.
 
This semester-long course is preceded by a three-week intensive course that takes place before the actual lecture period begins.
The intensive course serves as a preparation for the weekly course during the lecture period.
The workload of the intensive phase is to be understood as additional to the specified workload of this module.

Teaching methods/Media:
Target group-specific teaching and learning materials (print, audio, video, online materials) are used during the course.
 
To achieve the learning objectives, active participation of the students during the face-to-face sessions is required. Attendance at at least 80% of the sessions is therefore required. If attendance is not met without a valid reason, participation in the exam is not possible.
