Pre-requisites: MLT314, or A-level German + 1 year of study or stay abroad, or equivalent CEF B2+ proficiency in the language.
Aims/Description: Students will be required to work in collaboration with a native speaker with whom they will communicate in the target language. At the start of the module, students will exercise responsibility for the organisation of their own learning, establish and maintain contact with their partners, negotiate and set objectives; and seek and offer the correction of language errors. They should give proof of effective time-management, sequence sessions logically to demonstrate management of learning and demonstrate use of reviewing and evaluating procedures. They will be required to sign a learning contract and to keep a learner diary, in which they will record progress made plan their next steps and reflect on their work during the semester. Their progress will be monitored in advisory and counselling sessions with MLT Centre tutors. https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/mltc/lfa/courses/german/tandem
