This language course provides students with a sound foundation in German (grammar and vocabulary). It enables students to understand the gist of authentic written and spoken German and to speak and write about familiar topics with a degree of accuracy and fluency.
No previous knowledge of German is required, but this course is also for students which took German at school before, on any level lower than Higher or A-level.
With 3 Language Classes and 1 Language Practical per week this course encourages and supports students to develop their personal self-study strategies.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
Building on the work done in German for Beginners 1, this course will develop greater receptive and productive German language skills, enabling students to understand authentic spoken and written German and to express themselves in speech and writing with a reasonable degree of accuracy. Students attend formal language classes for the study of German grammar, and a weekly tutorial in smaller groups, focusing on spoken German. Students are also required to pursue an intensive course of private study and to submit regular written work. The course may be taken alone as a pure language course, or in combination with GM1549 - Background to German Beginners 2, and can lead on to a Honours degree in German.
