This intensive trains all four language skills – speaking, writing, listening and reading – with a view to improving your oral and written communication skills in particular. Central content and topics of the A2 language level are addressed. This includes simple conversations about past events and unambiguous communication in various everyday situations (e.g. sales encounters, telephone conversations); understanding short, spoken texts (e.g. loudspeaker announcements); and writing brief, simple texts (e.g. text messages and emails). Addressed topics (reading and listening) take into account the Swiss context in which you live and work.
Focused grammar input appropriate to participants' entry level allows them to improve declination, conjugation, syntax, and the use of tenses (perfect and simple past).
Our goal is to strengthen your knowledge of German, enhance your communication skills, expand your vocabulary and recognizably optimize your language competence.
On Thursday 12.09 or Monday 16.09.2019 you can receive individual consultation about potential courses in our German semester program from the coordinator of Deutsch als Fremdsprache. You can register for such a consultation during the course.
This intensive course is complemented by additional extracurricular events that facilitate exchanges among participants across courses and languages.
