Angaben zur Abhaltung
In this lecture, knowledge of German as a foreign language will be further developed, enabling students to express themselves in German independently and confidently in familiar situations, e.g. in the classroom, at work, in free time and with family, on topics of general interest, e.g. films, music, sports, etc, when standard German is spoken.
Students develop an expanded spectrum of vocabulary, figures of speech and idioms, discussion patterns, understand and use a basic repertoire of logical main and subordinate clauses (temporal clauses, causal clauses, infinitive clauses, final clauses, consecutive clauses and relative clause), verbs and nouns and expand their use of prepositions.
They review and develop elementary aspects of grammar, such as the use of tenses, prepositions, adjective declensions and comparatives. They examine specific features of culture with regard to festivals and traditions, the educational system, the business world, lifestyles and leisure activities, and obtain insight into contemporary culture in Germany.
Sound knowledge of module B1.1; placement test level B1.2
The lecture is aimed at level B1 of the CEFR. Students acquire knowledge of German as a foreign language at the standard language level with a focus on intercultural, cultural and academic aspects. Students obtain team competence through collaborative work in mixed, multinational groups. Following completion of this module, students can make themselves understood in most situations which occur in the context of studies, career and leisure time, and while traveling in German-speaking regions. They can report on academic and business careers; describe plans and 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 factual texts, literary texts, and radio and television programs and take part in spontaneous discussions on topics of general interest. Students can compose simple formal letters and longer personal letters and describe personal experiences. They can speak on everyday topics of personal interest in a structured fashion and, in writing, take a logically-defensible position on a current issue, when given assistance.

The lecture consists of a seminar in which course objectives will be achieved in a praxis-oriented, communicative atmosphere through listening, reading, writing and speaking exercises in individual, partner and group work. The fundamental language skills conveyed in the classroom are reinforced through the use of guided self-learning in the form of prepared (and online) materials. The basics of presenting and discussing everyday topics will be conveyed by means of the prescribed criteria and communicative patterns.

Textbook; multimedia teaching and learning materials (chalk/white board, overheads, worksheets, images, films, etc.) and online resources.
