Event description

Description

German (Level 6):

Tuesday 17:00 - 19:00 for 10 weeks

This course will take place every Tuesday for 10 weeks. Class will begin at 5.00pm and end at 7.00pm.

Class Dates: Tuesday 16, 23, 30 January; 6, 13, 20, 27 February; 6, 13, 20 March 2018



Learning Objectives:

Students taking the level 6 course should either have at least completed a GCSE examination in the subject, level 5 here at Queen’s, or have an equivalent knowledge of the Language. The aim of level 6 is to develop strong language skills, cultural awareness and grammatical ability, giving the student confidence in their ability and the competences needed to communicate effectively in a working environment.

Potential Topics:

Media e.g. Introduction to German newspapers/advertising/internet and social media; Popular culture e.g. music /fashion/trends/young people in society; Healthy lifestyle e.g. sport/healthy eating/alcohol/tobacco/work/life balance; Holidays e.g. destinations/activities/benefits/attitudes to holidays; Family relationships e.g. relationships with parents/friends, marriage; Career e.g. attitudes to jobs/advantages and disadvantages of jobs/ambitions for future career/skills and competencies; Extended letter writing e.g. letter of application, CV etc.

Suggested Grammar Coverage:

Students should be provided with a solid grammatical base which will allow them to converse more easily at this level by developing their own sentences and phrases. Inevitably at this level they will need to use different verb tenses and grammatical structures.

Learning outcomes:

Students will be able to hold discussions and justify their opinions using more complex language. Students will have developed a broad vocabulary in the topic areas outlined above and a comprehensive knowledge of all of the main grammatical themes. Students will understand frequently used words and phrases associated with everyday living, as well as working environments. Students will begin to recognise different registers and moods of language used in different contexts.




Please note: In order to receive a certificate of completion, you must attend a minimum of 7 out of 10 classes.
