Course handbook


This course, offered in Semester 2 each year, is a follow on from GRMN2501 (German Language 2A Intermediate), which is offered in Semester 1 each year. It concentrates on further developing reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. The course aims to provide a complete basis for further study of the German language at a senior level.



  • Semester 2 - 2022

Learning outcomes

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

1. Demonstrate understanding of oral and written texts in German at an intermediate level.

2. Produce oral and written texts in German about topics of personal relevance and everyday life.

3. Apply appropriate modes of interaction in German-speaking society informed by cross-cultural competence.

4. Think critically and reflect on their learning process.


This program follows on from GRMN2501. Whilst the program covers the four metaskills (speaking, listening, reading and writing), the emphasis is still on communicative competence but will also focus on extending reading and writing skills.
