Advanced German Language Skills (MLG3111)

30 credits

In this core-module we keep building upon your German vocabulary and revise Grammar that is of particular importance in terms of practical exercises. These exercises are designed to further improve your advanced language skills but also to show-case your employability in due course.

In the first semester you will exercise translations into English, paying close attention to correctness in terms of content but this is also an opportunity to reflect your use of English. Throughout the year we will translate a variety of texts, but in particular journalistic articles from English into German. Here the focus is on improving linguistic accuracy. Finally, you will learn how to summarise German texts in German and to write short opinion-pieces, preparing your for potential tasks in a future work-place.
