CULP: German Advanced Plus
Prerequisites£

Thu 15 Oct, Thu 22 Oct, ... Thu 11 Mar 2021

Description

The concept underpinning this course is one of fostering the learning of higher Advanced German language through listening (mainly films), reading (mainly literature), speaking and writing (both film and literature).

Every session will offer a choice of extracts either from the German* literary canon or from critically acclaimed films, or indeed both, which illustrate the session’s theme. These passages will be analysed by means of listening, reading and communicative exercises and will lead to a discussion about their aesthetic, wider cultural, historical and political implications and relevance today.

More detailed information is available from the Language Centre website.
