Description

Elective Course

This course will provide students with the skills needed to produce texts of different styles in German such as postcards, personal letters, formal letters, short essays (descriptive / argumentative), or short stories. The focus will be strongly on practical work. Students are expected to submit a piece of writing (150 - 300 words, depending on the type of writing) on a weekly or biweekly basis. Each session will be divided into two parts: Part I will be a discussion and analysis of texts prepared by the students following the introduction of the topic in the previous session. The discussion will focus both on the structure of the writings and as well as on grammatical and lexical correctness. Part II will introduce the topic of the following session. Students will be given advice on how to approach the topic and how to structure their texts. This course is taught in German supplemented by English.
