Lehrveranstaltungen

Englisch/FSZ: Englisch B1/B2 Interkulturalität und Sprachvertiefung. Crossing Cultural Borders (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Maryann Henck, Sabrina Völz

Inhalt: In this seminar, we will explore aspects of language, culture, and diversity by examining authentic texts. Literary and media texts can be viewed as the personal voice of a culture and language learning is a highly creative and personal process. Participation in discussions and in reflective activities is absolutely essential to enhance linguistic proficiency and critical thinking skills as well as to develop cultural sensitivity and a better understanding of not only different English-speaking cultures, but also one's own.

I expect this project to involve significant amounts of research and reading in a number of areas you have identified as being significant to living abroad in Germany as well as interviewing both foreigners and Germans, students and non-students alike.

Inhalt: Who? (Participants) This seminar is not just for drama kings and queens, but for anyone interested in the link between written and spoken words in general as well as dialogues you will learn to compose and perform in specific. What? (Objectives) This seminar is a (socio)linguistic and dramatic potpourri designed to help you - expand your vocabulary and pinpoint linguistic nuances - enhance your pronunciation, paralanguage, nonverbal communication, and presentation skills - improve your writing and listening skills - overcome pagefright and stagefright How? (Methods) We will play with the concept of the play, which is a dramatization of a story. First, we will read and analyze a short story that has been transformed into a play. Then, we will read and examine other short stories/vignettes to assist you in creating your own dialogues based on key events. You will have the opportunity to workshop your dramatic scenarios. Afterwards, you will be expected to translate them into a final performance, e.g. on stage, in a short film, a podcast, or a radio play, etc. The seminar will consist of group as well as individual appointments.

Englisch/FSZ: Englisch C1. Kommunikation im akademischen und beruflichen Kontext. Thesis Workshop (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Sigrid Pearson

Termin:
wöchentlich | Montag | 08:15 - 11:45 | 18.10.2010 - 04.02.2011 | C 16.203

Inhalt: Academic writing requires precise and clear expression while presenting complex arguments or explaining highly technical data and results. Add the challenge of writing in another language, and not surprisingly many students seek extra support when writing a thesis or paper in English. This course aims to help develop skills and strategies for writing academic essays and papers in English at an upper intermediate language level or higher. Support will be provided for grammar and usage, but the emphasis will be on: - clear structuring (planning, good introductions and convincing conclusions, using clear signalling language and paragraphing) - economy of expression and precision (style, syntax and punctuation) - clarity of ideas and concrete language (style; syntax; academic phrases and vocabulary for defining, linking, comparing, cause and result, etc.) - cross-cultural differences in academic language (German vs. English style) Classes will include communication activities as well as writing tasks, because discussing the ideas in English beforehand helps students to write them down more clearly, free from German (or native-language) syntax. Students will be encouraged to provide critical and supportive feedback, and will learn techniques for getting the most from peer support. Writing will be done in class as well as for homework. Students will write an essay for the final evaluation, and this will be developed during the semester, with support from the instructor and fellow students.

Englisch/FSZ: English B2. Kommunikation im akademischen und beruflichen Kontext. Effective Communication in English (Seminar)

Termin:
wöchentlich | Dienstag | 08:15 - 11:45 | 18.10.2010 - 04.02.2011 | C 5.124

Inhalt: This course is intended for those who are curious about the different ways to communicate effectively in English in all sorts of contexts to a variety of people. Each participant will become familiar with different forms of communication, the job application process, and gain experience using technology as a communication and language learning tool. Students will give an interactive presentation in English, work with reference works, write an essay, a c.v., and a cover letter.
