This subject focuses on various aspects of contemporary German language. It aims at consolidating and expanding students' proficiency in both written and spoken language and continues with the development of communicative skills, with reference to the main register of contemporary German. The subject also aims at demonstrating the differences between colloquial, formal and specialised registers where appropriate, and at activating and furthering skills in oral and written communication. It combines this with a study of language functions and grammatical structures. On completion of the subject students should have developed 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.
