GERM301: German Language: Written Skills (CEFR: C1/C2) - 15 credits

Final year

This module is a half unit and is integrated with the German Language: Oral Skills module.

This module together with the oral skills module consists of three hours tuition per week.

This module has two main aims. The first one is to enhance students’ linguistic proficiency with emphasis on understanding of spoken and written German, the speaking of German (prepared and spontaneous) in both formal and informal settings, the writing of German, and the systematic study of German lexis, grammar and syntax. The second aim is to increase students’ awareness, knowledge and understanding of contemporary Germany.

By the end of this module, students should have developed an informed interest in the society and culture of the German-speaking world. They should also have acquired almost native-speaker abilities in both spoken and written language.
