This Module will continue to progress the student towards the acquisition of general language skills at CEFR Level A1. Cultural issues will continue to be explored through similar media as in Semester 1. On completion of this Semester, the student will be equipped to perform with a level of confidence at CEFR Level A1.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

continue progress towards achieving competence at  CEFR Level A1 (Basic User).

2.

employ an increased range of sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g.  basic personal and family information; shopping; local geography; employment

3.

introduce oneself and others; ask and answer varied questions about personal details and describe in very simple terms his/her background, immediate environment, social and personal interests.

4.

role-play in a simple way provided the other person speaks slowly and clearly, and is prepared to help

5.

recall and discuss geography of German-speaking countries and exlain some key cultural aspects of these countries

Teaching and Learning Strategies

Active Learning and Participation is encouraged and facilitated through small class size, role-play and e-learning activities via Moodle and the Virtual Learning Environment. The use of simple authentic texts (abridged) and use of sub-titles with audio and audio-visual materials expands the student's experience of contemporary language learning media and equally underpins the contemporary focus of relevant topics. 

Module Assessment Strategies

Linguistic ability will be assessed in:

  • role-plays and oral presentations
  • oral interview
  • written tests
  • listening tests
  • project/presentation

ONGOING = Every TWO To FOUR  weeks, assessment in these areas will occur through Oral/Aural/Written work and/or Role-play

These assessments  measure student progress to A1 level

Repeat Assessments

Repeat written and oral assessments
