Language Learning at The Open University
The German studies 1 course covers the language and culture of the German-speaking world. This module takes you to an intermediate level of linguistic competence in German, which is equivalent to B1 level of the Council of Europe's Common European Framework of Reference. You will develop your confidence in listening, reading, writing, speaking and interacting in German, as well as your knowledge and understanding of German-speaking societies and cultures. In addition, the module is designed to expand your academic, digital and employability skills in German contexts. You will have the option to study most activities in a book or as interactive online activities on the module website. The website uses authentic online resources in support of independent and collaborative learning. OU qualifications are modular in structure; the credits from this undergraduate-level module could count towards a certificate of higher education, diploma of higher education, foundation degree or honours degree.
