Learning objectives
Along with their receptive, productive and interactive skills in German, students will also solidify their mediation skills (which the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages considers a true fourth competency). Students will therefore be capable of translating, paraphrasing and summarizing C1- and C2-level texts while also taking into consideration existing cultural differences. Students will also gain the capacity to use a foreign language (both written and spoken) in a well-structured, correct and precise manner so as to fully express their thoughts and opinions on political, economic and other current topics.
Expected learning outcomes
Students will attain an intermediate level of German, which will allow them to express themselves (in both written and spoken German) without too much effort and with relative fluency on known topics. In addition to receptive, productive and interactive skills, students will also acquire mediation skills (considered by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languags as a true fourth competency). Students will therefore be capable of translating, paraphrasing and summarizing B2-level texts while also taking into consideration existing cultural differences.
