Angaben zur Abhaltung
In this course, students gain proficiency in German as a foreign language, including intercultural, regional and academic aspects, enabling them to express themselves independently and confidently in familiar situations, e.g. in the course of studies, work, leisure time and family, as well as talk about subjects of general interest like films, music, sports, etc. in the target language when standard language is employed.
Students develop a broader spectrum of vocabulary, expressions and dialog patterns. They expand and use a basic repertoire of logical main and subordinate clauses (e.g. temporal clause, causal sentence, infinitive clause, final clause, consecutive clause, relative clause). They learn and practice the use of reflexive verbs, as well as verbs and nouns with prepositions. Furthermore, students learn and practice the usage of the subjunctive II, the passive and the future tense. They reinforce and expand elementary aspects of grammar, such as the use of tenses, prepositions, the declination of the adjective and the comparison.
Students examine specific features of culture with regard to festivals and traditions, the educational system, the professional environment, way of life and leisure activities, and obtain insight into contemporary culture in Germany. Opportunities will be made available for effective, self-motivated, independent learning. Students acquire teamwork skills through collaborative work in multinational mixed groups.

Upon completion of this course, students can make themselves understood in most situations occurring in the context of work, study, leisure-time and travel in German speaking regions.
They can report on academic and business careers; express hopes and wishes; make, accept or reject invitations; give advice and directions; express and discuss opinions.
They can understand and summarize the general content of simple, authentic texts, television and radio programs, as well as literature, and join in conversations about matters of general interest. Additionally, students are able to compose simple formal or private letters and relate personal experiences. Students can talk about everyday subjects of personal interest in a structured way and can write a logical, reasoned opinion about a current topic when assistance is provided.
lecture with exercises
The course consists of a seminar covering material appropriate to desired learning outcomes and encompassing relevant listening, reading, writing and speaking exercises. These exercises may take the form of individual, partner or group work, implementing a communicative and activity-oriented approach. Contents of the seminar can be reinforced by reviewing basic grammar with specified (online) materials in independent study. The basic principles of presenting and discussing everyday topics will be conveyed by means of the prescribed criteria and patterns of communication.
Voluntary homework (preparation and follow-up work) reinforces classroom and structured learning.
