„Ziel C2“ (Modul 1): Strategien zum Wortschatzaufbau

Zielgruppe: Der Sprachkurs „Ziel C2“ (Modul 1): Strategien zum Wortschatzaufbau ist für Studierende mit fortgeschrittenen Kenntnissen geeignet, die den C1.2-Kurs erfolgreich abgeschlossen oder im Einstufungstest mindestens 193 Punkte erreicht haben. Kursinhalt: Das Modul 1 „Strategien zum Wortschatzaufbau“ ist Teil des C2-Kurses, der aus insgesamt 6 Modulen besteht, die im Laufe der folgenden Semester sukzessive angeboten werden: Modul 2: Grammatiklücken schließen; Modul 3 „Fremdsprache Literatur“; Modul 4-6: Wissenschaftssprache Deutsch.

Haben Sie schon einmal darüber nachgedacht, warum die Deutschen ihre Zähne putzen, die Engländer ihre Zähne bürsten und die Japaner ihre Zähne waschen…? Und wie ist es in Ihrer Erstsprache?

In diesem Kurs widmen wir uns Fragen wie „Welche Wörter werden in welchem Zusammenhang verwendet (Kollokationen)?“ oder „Wie vermeide ich Stilbrüche?“ (Idiomatik). Der Kurs folgt der Methode „Wortschatz lernen mit Struktur“, d.h. Sie lernen, wie Sie Ihren Wortschatz durch verschiedene Strukturen und Strukturregeln erweitern können (Wortfamilien, Synonyme, Antonyme, Homonyme). Außerdem legen Sie im Kurs ein eigenes Vokabelheft nach Kopiervorlagen an und lernen, mit digitalen Korpora und Wörterbüchern zu arbeiten.

Eine regelmäßige und aktive Teilnahme sind Voraussetzung für das erfolgreiche Absolvieren des Kurses. Dafür ist ebenfalls das Erledigen von Hausaufgaben notwendig, um das Gelernte weiter zu üben und zu festigen.
Der Kurs umfasst 30 Präsenzstunden. Es besteht Anwesenheitspflicht. Wenn Sie einen Leistungsnachweis erhalten möchten, dürfen Sie nicht mehr als 6 Unterrichtsstunden (20%) fehlen. Sie müssen mit einem zusätzlichen Arbeitsaufwand von mindestens weiteren 30 Stunden für Hausaufgaben und eigene Wortschatzarbeit rechnen. Die Bewertung der Kursleistung erfolgt durch die Bewertung der Hausaufgaben. Es wird keine Klausur geschrieben.
