The course expects the student to have completed RZ4. It concentrates predominantly on reading skills (working with professional texts, i.e. understanding, extracting and summarizing information from a specialized text) and speaking, and to a certain extent, writing about the professional information obtained by reading the texts. Communication skills are trained on everyday topics. Studying grammar is based on professional and technical texts and only includes items typically used in professional communication (verbal adjectives, participles, passive voice). Students develop their technical and economic vocabulary, and are also trained in some professional skills (writing a CV, polite request, etc.)
