Pre-requisites: MLT265, or A-level German + 1 year of study or stay abroad, or equivalent CEF B2 proficiency in the language.
Aims/Description: The aims are to enable students to work independently and collaboratively in German, to foster the acquisition of subject-specific terminology and discourse in German; to encourage interaction with native speakers of German, by e-mail or face-to-face. Students will be expected to investigate an agreed topic closely related to their main course of study. This will entail devising a project proposal and plan, gathering information from a range of written and spoken sources (normally including German native-speakers), and synthesising this to form the basis of a formal written report and a structured oral presentation. On completion, students should be able to: collaborate successfully with native-speakers of German: use international e-mail links to do so where appropriate; analyse information, distinguishing fact from opinion and main ideas from supporting detail; and present findings in speech and writing using formal register and - where appropriate - subject-specific language. https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/mltc/lfa/courses/german/project_higher_advanced
