Content

The language modules offered are designed according to the methodological principles of a communicative, action-oriented approach. The competence levels of the modules offered are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and a central objective is that students expand their communication skills by at least one level through the two courses that build on each other in the winter and summer semesters.

The German modules comprise 30 learning units per semester; all other language modules comprise 67.5 learning units per semester.

In addition, there is a clear focus on the acquisition of academic and business-oriented skills in the advanced language courses.

Costs for accompanying learning material are to be borne by the participants themselves.


Learning Goals 

Within the framework of the modules, students will acquire the language skills and develop skills that are necessary for a business-oriented professional or academic activity. The following competencies are taught according to the CEFR, i.e. after completing the module, successful graduates will master the following activities in the target language:

  • A1-A2 
    Basic communication skills
     
  • B1-B2 
    Advanced language use and communication skills
     
  • B2-C1: 
    Spontaneous, fluent, clear and detailed, structured communication skill
     
  • C1-C2: 
    Spontaneous, fluent, accurate, structured, complex communication skills

The business school will issue a certificate upon completion of the course. For this, 80 percent attendance and a positive course grade are required.
