Basic German AII University of Tsukuba
The objectives of the course are to develop the four classical receptive & productive language skills (listening/reading & speaking/writing), but also the two equally important skills of interaction (e.g. using also gestures and body language) and mediation (e.g. helping each other to understand). Therefore, the classes will be held synchronously - if somehow possible. On completion of the course, students will have acquired practical German language (possibly A1 level), gained insight in central European cultures, and experienced intensive teamwork.
"1. Ability to communicate, to interact, to mediate, and to work in groups.
2. Learning to learn (e.g. loci method); note taking.
3. Critical thinking."
Homework (learner diary, listening comprehension quizzes & notebook): 40%. Presentation (2nd performance), including audience Q&A: 20%. Random pair dialog (3rd perf.), incl. aud. Q&A: 20%. Pronunciation (1st performance): 10%. Final report: 10%.
