10 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: Assuming a solid, two year post-A-level study of the language and, ideally, a prolonged stay in a country where the language is spoken, this unit aims to provide the linguistic and cultural skills required to operate as a near-native speaker in the target country, whether for professional, academic or recreational purposes, and to develop strategies and techniques to become a fully autonomous, life-long learner of the language and culture (CEF level C1+). Based on 33 hours of small group (15-20) interactive seminars almost exclusively delivered in the foreign language, the unit also comprises 67 hours of monitored private study. https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/mltc/lfa/courses/german/stage_5a
