Sept 2019 – Jun 2020


As part of the strategy of the Language Centre to reorganize the language courses and to offer from 2020 more courses for students from all schools (and less special courses), we (the German teachers) decided to reorganize our courses as well. This reorganization means that we will reduce our course offer. In the future, our courses will offer more general content for students from different backgrounds.

Our students will still have a need for material from their own area (BIZ, TEC, ARTS). That is why we plan to create different kinds of modules for special purposes to integrate them in our courses as self-study-material. These modules will be for all German courses from level A1 – C1 and in digital form (e.g. videos, interviews with natives).

The modules will have an extent of about 0,5 credits/level. This means a minimum of 2 credits all in all.
