Important announcement re: old-style Module 1 exam format

The old-style Module 1 format has been discontinued and is now no longer offered. Students who were previously eligible to take the old-style Module 1 exam but did not take it prior to the winter semester 23/24 must now take the new-style Module 1 exam consisting of a grammar section and an essay section. Details about the structure and assessment of this exam can be found at the link below.

The language practice courses primarily concern using English accurately and effectively, both in terms of written and spoken language.

Initially, in English 1, we focus on written communication in the form of persuasive writing, emphasising the importance of precision, conciseness, and clarity. To achieve this, we look at how to structure writing to maximise readability as well as accurate grammar and vocabulary.

Later, in English 2, we shift mainly to spoken language, in particular fluency, accuracy, and pronunciation.

Some students then take our English 3 courses, in which we practise more complex writing and German-English translation of news articles. Here, students focus on idiomatic English and avoiding common errors that are made by German native speakers in particular.
