Evelyn and participant discussing the prove-it exerciseTime of the course: 1 SH Mondays 11:45-13:15 / 2 SH Tuesdays 14:15-15:45 (course assistants: Evelyn and Ruzigar)

On this elective course BACHELOR students develop self-confidence in typical situations in an English work place (e.g. giving presentations and taking part in and chairing meetings). Furthermore, they should enhance their sensitivity to different cultural situations. As communication skills have to be developed, the focus will be on interactive teaching methods to give students the chance to improve listening comprehension and speaking performance. The students choose their own subjects for the course at the beginning of the Semester.

Time of the course: Mondays 17:45-19:15 (course assistant: Hari)IntComG1


Students are trained to perceive cultural differences and act accordingly. The intercultural competence gained is both "culture-general" and "culture-specific" (e.g. students will practice culture-specific "crash investigations" in order to prepare visits abroad). Theoretical insights into different working styles, different perceptions of time, different religions, and different education styles are applied in exercises and in concrete simulations involving active interaction if possible with participants from several other cultures.
