Learning Outcomes

The aim of the voluntarily assignable module English is that the participants body of words and the cultural background for the topics covered in the courses get taught. In addition, hints are given how new vocabulary can be learned and difficult technical texts can be read quickly (skimming, scanning, search reading). The analogous translation is trained in oral and written translation (not the literal
translation). Participants will acquire the skills to articulate the fundamentals in economics in English and to express their own opinions as well as economic issues and relationships, even more complex to discuss with other participants. In addition, they acquire the skills to identify relevant business texts as relevant, structured to read and analyze.
