Learning outcomes:

They offer students a framework to further develop their English language skills in a professionally related area from the desired entry level B1 to level B2.
About the "Professional Presentations" module:
After successfully completing this module, students will understand strategies for the creation of professional, subject-specific presentations in English. They will be able to structure English-language presentations and use the verbal expressions they have mastered in them. In doing so, they will continue to develop their understanding of the functional use of language.
With regard to job application processes, students will be given the opportunity to prepare their application documents in English, apply and practice interview strategies and develop their intercultural awareness.
