Voraussetzungen / Organisatorisches

Entry requirements: placement test result "Level 3" OR Level 2 completed (= 4SWS at Level 2 passed)


In this class you will be offered the opportunity to gain confidence in speaking English through speaking English.
You will be offered the opportunity to become acquainted with the kind of spoken language which will enable you take part successfully in an intelligent conversation or discussion (‘success’ meaning that you will leave the impression that you are able to talk intelligently in English) about general and academic subjects.
You will, in other words, be introduced to or reminded of issues such as:

  • Register

  • Idiom

  • Collocation

  • Pronunciation

  • Intonation

  • Interrupting / proposing / agreeing / disagreeing / turn taking

Some of the topics for discussion will be chosen by your tutor but you will also be asked to speak about your own particular areas of interest, or to research subjects of interest to you so that you can give the other members of the class a verbal summary of what you discovered.

Your grade will be based on:
  • Your performance in class generally

  • Your performance in a structured role play

  • Your recorded, spoken answers to a range of questions which will be posed to you automatically in the language lab.

Es wird empfohlen, im Zuge des Studiums einer Fremdsprache einmal die Übung "Kickstart: Fremdsprachen lernen" (auf UNIVIS unter Sprachenzentrum > Sprachbezogene Zusatzqualifikationen in Erlangen) zu besuchen.
