10 Credits AUTUMN

Pre-requisites: MLT315, or A-level German + 2 years of study or long stay abroad, or equivalent CEF C1 proficiency in the language.

Aims/Description: This unit aims to enable students at a 'Proficient' level of competence in the language to engage critically and independently with a highly specialised topic normally closely related to their main field of study in order to acquire expert use of subject-specific terminology and discourse and to consolidate advanced research skills in relation to the language and field of study. Working under regular supervision, students will complete a written portfolio (2,500 - 3,000 words) and prepare a structured oral presentation summarizing authoritatively their research for a specialist audience and demonstrating their acquisition of relevant academic and linguistic skills. https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/mltc/lfa/courses/german/project_proficient
