Description

What is the course about?

This course is a continuation of the beginners Danish course (Danish 1: module 2) building upon and expanding basic Danish conversational skills as well as increasing knowledge of Danish culture.

What will we cover?

You will learn to communicate in a broader range of everyday situations with topcis such as going to the doctors, life stages and traditions (birthdays, marriage, baptism), facts about Danish society, and expressing your opinions, dreams, wishes and desires.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

- talk about your health
- talk about the main stages in your life
- talk about Danish traditions and society
- express and justify opinions, dreams, wishes and desires
- talk about past, present and future events.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

This course is for near beginners – students should have completed Danish: 1: module 2 or have equivalent knowledge of the language.

For further details of the specific foreign language skills required for this level, please see the languages self assessment chart at the start of the languages section of our course guide or at http://www.citylit.ac.uk/self-assess-your-level
You will also need to be able to respond to simple instructions and explanations, as well as read course documents, in English. You will need to be at ease with the use of numbers for daily activities (e.g. using money, telling the time, using the 24 hour clock, reading timetables). It would also be helpful if you had some knowledge of basic grammar terminology such as: a verb, a noun and conjugation.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

- active students’ interaction
- emphasis on speaking and listening skills
- pair and group work
- role plays
- use of realia, pictures and authentic material
- use of audio-visual techniques when appropriate

Please note, students are expected to participate in oral classroom activities and to do some homework as and when required.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

Based on the tutor's own material.

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

Your tutor will advise you on what to do next. If there is enough interest, we may be able to offer year 2 Danish in the next academic year (2016/17), depending on room and tutor availability.
