The aim of the course is to learn and consolidate the basic technical vocabulary in the field of mechanical engineering and - application-oriented - grammatical structures. Furthermore, the receptive linguistic skills of listening and reading comprehension are trained. Participants should be enabled to follow first lectures in English in the field of mechanical engineering and to understand English-language technical literature. Strategies will be presented and practiced.
During this seven-week course, different learning and teaching techniques will be used:
Through videos with quiz interactions, we will present information.
You will get the chance to link up with other participants, discuss the content and work up ideas together.
Finally, interactive questions will help you check your learning progress.
