Posts from students on STUDYasU-Instagram Account

Students of the seminar 'Barrier-sensitive Blended Learning' create barrier-sensitive contributions to categories such as 'Did you know?' or 'How to know?', which are gradually published on our account.

Thematically, it revolves around the current offerings at the EUF and in Flensburg, but it also reveals optimization needs. The contributions should contribute to the sensitization of the actors at the EUF and stimulate a common exchange.

We look forward to your comments/DMs! @studyasyouare

Leichte Sprache (Easy language) supports many people in understanding texts. 

This myth is true.

"Leichte Sprache" represents a simplified, easy-to-understand form of everyday and technical language. Rules are observed when using it. The "Netzwerk Leichte Sprache" gives the following rules as examples:

  • Use simple words
  • Write short sentences
  • Do not use abbreviations
  • Leave enough space between the lines
  • Make many paragraphs and headings
  • Use pictures

Providing (also) information in "Leichter Sprache" supports many people. If "Leichte Sprache" texts are missing, even a small information pleque at the museum could be hard to read and to understand. Thus, people with mental challenges who face reaing difficulties as well as people with dyslexia are excluded from information. Further, texts in "Leichter Sprache" support many people, such as second or foreign language learners of German, or elder people.

Visit us in our Student Office for Barriere-Sensitive Service (STUBBS), to talk with us about "Leichte Sprache" and Barriere-Sensitivity.
