The seminar „German as a foreign academic language“ is aimed at students with a non-German mother tongue. The international students acquire a practical-theoretical approach to German as a language of science and develop written and oral competences that are necessary to cope with university requirements. Students develop a research draft within the framework of the seminar. In this process, they are guided from finding a topic to writing an exposé. In addition, special attention is paid to the characteristics of the academic language German in writing (e.g. lexis, style, syntax) as well as orally (preparing and giving presentations). Furthermore, the students familiarise themselves with research methods. Students will hand in a portfolio.
