Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


In this module, students gain additional basic knowledge of French as a foreign language, enabling them to successfully manage everyday situations, e.g. while travelling, at the doctor, while looking for a place to live, or while talking to colleagues, friends and neighbors. More grammar will be covered, e.g. use of the Passé Composé und Imparfait, the conditional, relative pronouns, en + y pronouns, comparatives and the superlative. Students will learn strategies for successfully communicating in day-to-day situations with minimal language skills. Additionally, opportunities will be made available to more effectively learn French as a foreign language and thus to improve the student's ability to learn.

Learning Outcome

The module is aimed at level "A2 - Elementary Language Use" of the CEFR. Students gain basic knowledge of French as a foreign language with general language orientation while taking into consideration intercultural and cultural aspects. After completion of this module, students will be able to understand and use simple sentences and expressions on a broader spectrum of familiar topics. Students can, for example, describe where they live, their health status and free-time activities. They are able to communicate while searching for a place to live and in important situations while on holiday or travelling and describe the resulting experiences or events. They can use and understand standard expressions in familiar communication situations both orally and in writing.
