Description

This Module continues to progress towards CEFR Level B1. The student is expected to demonstrate greater independence in the correct use of oral, written and aural skills.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

Active Learning is encouraged and participation is facilitated  through small class size, role-play and e-learning activities via Moodle, the Virtual Learning Environment. The use of simple authentic texts ( abridged and use of sub-titles) with audio and audio-visual materials provides an introduction to modern media in German/Austria and underpins the contemporary focus of relevant topics. Encouragement to organise conversation and social events with native speakers ( e.g. Erasmus students from German speaking countries). Tandem Learning Initiative with Hochschule Brandenburg, February 2021 is an example of this active collaboration.

Cineplex: Intermediate German Language and Culture Through Film is a communicative textbook for second-year German-language courses that uses engaging, authentic cultural materials: feature films from Germany. Each of the ten chapters in Cineplex focuses on a contemporary, critically-acclaimed film--on highly motivationally topics ranging from the West-German student movement to the German Democratic Republic to Turkish-German migrants to the Holocaust--that appeals to the needs of intermediate learners and their understanding of German-speaking culture. Designed for today's student, Cineplex is more than just a textbook--it is a space in which students can 'meet' the people of Germany through the big screen and experience German language and culture as it is performed in context. Features: * Vorbereitung und Hintergrund sections provide pre-viewing exercises that prepare students for a positive and effective viewing experience * Scene studies allow students to deal closely with the film through didacticized clips with pre- and post-viewing activities * Film-derived grammar exercises provides students with a thorough and traditional intermediate grammar trajectory while learning key grammar in context * Readings relate thematically to the film, ranging from poems and excerpts from literary prose to speeches and magazine articles * Ten appealing films are easily available (for links to purchase, visit focusbookstore.com) * A companion website with an auto-correcting workbook, links to film resources, and more is available on Focus Online Courseware (courses.pullins.com)
