|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject focuses on various aspects of contemporary German language. It aims at consolidating and expanding students' proficiency in both written and spoken language. Students continue with the development of communicative skills, with reference to the main registers of contemporary German. The subject also aims at demonstrating the differences between colloquial, formal and specialised registers, and at furthering skills in oral and written communication. It combines this with a study of language functions and grammatical structures. Students should develop listening skills through the use of different types of audio-visual materials, and writing and reading skills through a variety of text types and sources, including the Internet and computer-assisted learning tools.
|Assessment:||A 2-hour grammar exam 30%, two 1-hour listening comprehension tests 20% (due in week 5 and 9), a 10-minute oral presentation 20% (due during semester) and two essays of 500 words in German 30% (due in week 4 and week 8).|
