Intercultural Language Course
The language course in the morning equips you with the necessary linguistic and regional background knowledge for the in-depth specialised course in the afternoon.
Within each level, all courses deal with the following regional topics with varying degrees of difficulty:
- Germany Through Foreign Eyes
- Everyday Life in Germany
- Regional Variety
- Cultural Variety
- Germany in the World
"German as a foreign language" consists not only of vocabulary and correct sentence structure. Germans also structure their conversations in a particular way and adhere to a culture-specific set of values. This adherence to culture in communication is a particular focus. Therefore a connection between foreign language and foreign understanding is formed.
Before the start of the summer university, you will be allocated to the course which is most suitable for you by means of an assessment. You strengthen your German language skills through dealing with stylistics, idiomology, and vocabulary relevant to the issue. Aspects of German literature, culture, and society will be analysed and discussed. You can also give your own presentation if you wish.
