Module overview

The aim of every language course at the University is to enable you to communicate in your target language (TL) at that particular level and in your particular area of interest. We use the word ‘communicate’ in its widest sense, meaning that you will not only be able to talk to people in the language but also to develop your proficiency in listening, reading, and writing. This means that the module aims for you to understand all the things which affect communication in that language, including knowledge of how the language is used, how it works and how to analyse it, and the cultural contexts in which it is spoken.

This particular module is aimed at complete beginners.

Successful completion of the full Stage 1, over 2 semesters, is approximately equivalent to having reached Level A1 of the Common European Framework or a good GCSE.

Taking this single semester module at Stage 1 will take you part of the way to the outcomes of the full Stage. You are encouraged to take a full language Stage if you want to make significant progress in the language you are learning.
