Learning outcomes

On successful completion of the course students will be able to:

1. develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in German language

2. demonstrate an understanding of and communicate in German about selected topics

3. extend knowledge of the German-speaking world and appropriate modes of interaction in German-speaking society

4. develop the capacity to think critically and organise time effectively


This course follows on from GRMN1502. Areas of language that were not treated in ELEMENTARY GERMAN will be covered, including full treatment of noun cases, adjective endings, past tenses and future tenses. Whilst the course covers the four meta-skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing), the emphasis is still on communicative competence but will also focus on extending reading and writing skills.
