Syllabus D

Prerequisite for entry

Successful completion of syllabus C at the UCL CLIE or if you are reasonably fluent in the language and are able to discuss a range of issues (low A level grade*).

Aims and objectives

The aim of the course is to enable students who already have a reasonably advanced knowledge of the language to acquire a better fluency in the language. Students should then be able to communicate in all situations within countries where the language is spoken.

On completion of the course students will be able to converse with native speakers, follow debates and give presentations relating to their degree as well as discussing current issues (local and worldwide) using more complex and linguistically accurate structures (different types of discourse, register).

Cultural awareness will be further developed and raised within a European/global context. Language learning skills, including autonomous learning and how to approach authentic material, will be further enhanced. Various transferable skills will also be covered.
