Event description

Description

German Post A Level:

THURSDAY 19:00 - 21:00 for 10 weeks

Course Dates: Thursday 16, 23, 30 January; 6, 20, 27 February; 5, 12, 19, 26 March 2020. (Please note that you don't have a class on February 13th).


Learning Objectives:

Students taking the Post A'Level course should either have completed an A-level examination in the subject, completed Post AS Level here at Queen’s, or have an equivalent knowledge of the Language. The aim of Post A'Level is to develop high level language skills, more in-depth cultural awareness and strong grammatical ability, giving the student confidence in their ability to express themselves relatively fluently and to communicate with relative ease in a working environment.

Potential Topics:

Environment e.g. pollution, energy, protecting the planet; The multicultural society e.g. immigration, racism; Contemporary social issues e.g. wealth/poverty, law and order, impact of scientific/technological progress; Cultural topics e.g. this could be a look at a German region/country, a period of German history, a German book/poem/play/film, the work of a German director/architect/musician

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 and complexities.

Learning outcomes:

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 and be able to use words and phrases associated with everyday living and working environments as well as some more familiar language and colloquialisms. Students will be able to hold discussions and justify their opinions using complex language. Students will recognise different registers and moods of language used in different contexts. Students will be able to express wishes, desires and hopes.


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