Registering for Sprachpraxis courses in SoSe 2023

Registration for Sprachpraxis courses in SoSe 2023 will begin on Monday March 6. Please read the detailed instructions (see Registration for courses on the left) carefully. This is also where you can find the priority registration forms for BA / MA and for teaching students. 

The Sprachpraxis (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.
