Foreign language courses
There is a foreign language centre. Foreign language proficiency is undoubtedly one of the skills that is required alongside subject knowledge and competency in virtually all academic professions, but it is also relevant to studying itself. the KoSi (Competence Centre) offers the opportunity to learn new languages as well as to develop and improve skills in foreign languages already learned. Additional courses on technical language communication, primarily in English, systematically prepare students for use of the foreign language in both professional and academic contexts. The KoSi supports the potential for multilingualism with dedicated courses for students with a migration background who have acquired another language as their mother language in addition to German. During these courses (currently available for Polish, Russian, Turkish and German as a Second Language), the focus is on developing skills in reading and producing written texts and using the language in professional contexts in particular. For students from abroad, courses in “German as a Foreign Language” (DaF) are offered at all levels (A1.1 to C1+), so that suitable courses are available for learners with no previous knowledge of the language as well as advanced learners. In addition, as an alternative or supplement to foreign language courses, the KoSi also offers the opportunity to enhance foreign language competency on an individual basis and independently of set course times in the multimedia independent study centre (SESAM). Self-learning materials are available here for a large number of languages. Intensive learning guidance can be arranged upon request. SESAM finds and also supervises tandem learning partners. Current foreign languages available: Chinese, German as a Foreign Language, English, French, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Russian, Swedish, Spanish, Turkish. more information
