Was wolltest du schon immer über Deutschland und die deutsche Sprache lernen?

Willst du deine Fähigkeiten in interkultureller Kommunikation verbessern und fit für Reisen sein?

Willst du etwas über die deutsche Kultur und Gesellschaft lernen - abseits von Stereotypen und Oktoberfest?

Dann bist du in diesem Modul genau richtig! Hop on board and join our tour through German language and culture.

This module is conducted through German. Throughout the semester, you will perform individual and collaborative tasks to develop your confidence and competence mainly in spoken production but also in written and listening comprehension. The classes are interactive and connected to some independent learning.

No exam! The interactive language classes and your Portfolio work are your only duties... You will get your passport stamped for every country you visit


No exam! Practicing French each week and doing your E-Portfolio will be your only duty... You will get your passport stamped for every country you visit

Each week, students will share a cultural aspect from a German speaking area.
We will discover different places in Germany and other German speaking countries and look at different traditions, dialects and cultural aspects of this place.

It will be followed by a creative activity (creative writing/games).

Die deutschen Dialekte!

Deutschland hat ungefähr 20 verschiedene Dialektgruppen. Im Süden Deutschlands sind sie besonders ausgeprägt.

Verstehst du einige Dialektworte? "Gaudi" bedeutet "Spaß" und "O´zapft" heißt, dein Bier ist fertig! :) Na dann, schmecken lassen!

Bist du neugierig, wie der Bayerische Dialekt klingt? Hör mal rein:
