Allgemeinsprachige Englischkurse


Die Kurse mit niedrigerem Niveau bieten allgemeine Unterstützung zur Stärkung der vier Kompetenzen: Lesen, Hören, Schreiben und Sprechen. Die Schwerpunkte dieser Kurse sind die Grammatik und lexikalische Strukturen. Die Kurse mit höherem Niveau bauen auf dieses Wissen auf und führen fortgeschrittene akademische Kompetenzen ein, die für das Studium und darüber hinaus wichtig sind.

Für individuelle Fragen kontaktieren Sie bitte den Englischkoordinator, der Sie zur Auswahl eines geeigneten Kurses beraten kann.
