Our German and Spanish course is designed to develop your linguistic skills to near-native proficiency and fluency.
We stress the development of your practical command of German/Spanish, emphasising language as a means of communication and mutual understanding. Our programme also aims to develop your understanding of German/Spanish culture and society - its traditions, its complexities, its underlying ideas - and to develop your critical, analytical and collaborative skills.
You will also require transferable skills such as teamwork and independent research. These will be essential for any of the career choices that the course will open up for you. Language classes are supplemented by a series of thematic modules, also taught in German/Spanish, which focus on contemporary German/Spanish society, particularly on politics, socio-linguistics, media, film and literature. You will be taught by research experts, with international reputations in their fields, in a lively, friendly, experienced and enthusiastic department.
