||In this lecture, knowledge of German as a foreign language will be further developed, enabling students to express themselves in German independently and confidently in familiar situations, e.g. in the classroom, at work, in free time and with family, on topics of general interest, e.g. films, music, sports, etc, when standard German is spoken.
Students develop an expanded spectrum of vocabulary, figures of speech and idioms, discussion patterns, understand and use a basic repertoire of logical main and subordinate clauses (temporal clauses, causal clauses, infinitive clauses, final clauses, consecutive clauses and relative clause), verbs and nouns and expand their use of prepositions.
They review and develop elementary aspects of grammar, such as the use of tenses, prepositions, adjective declensions and comparatives. They examine specific features of culture with regard to festivals and traditions, the educational system, the business world, lifestyles and leisure activities, and obtain insight into contemporary culture in Germany.
