Synopsis:

The course consists of 3 main parts (general communicative situations, grammar and technical topics). Students will develop their vocabulary in a variety of less common situations (traffic problems and car accidents, accident report, filling in a form, complaints). Based on presentations and technical and subtechnical texts, the vocabulary range in fields such as nuclear power engineering, the environment, computer science, and car technology, will also be extended. Only authentic professional texts are used. By means of a presentation, students are trained to process information gained from their reading of complex and difficult texts and present it to the class in a simplified oral form. The course also includes translation practice to and from German.
