THIS IS A PILOT COURSE AND WILL BE OFFERED IN THE WINTER SEMESTER 2019/20. THE PURPOSE OF THE PILOT COURSE IS TO TRIAL NEW ACTIVITIES WHICH ARE DEVELOPED FOR OUR FUTURE CLASSES.
The syllabus for this pilot course consists of all material contained in the specified units of the textbook (see Literature). The books are available in the Management Book Service store, in the Lehrbuchsammlung, the Sprachlernzentrum and the Bibliothek fuer Wirtschaftssprachen. However, you are advised not to buy a copy until you have successfully registered for a place in one of the relevant LVs and attended the first class.
This EBC2 pilot course differs from regular EBC2 courses, so please read carefully all the information provided under 'syllabus'. These differences include:
- Selected tasks from the book "Business Proficiency" will be used in class (from units 11, 13 & 16), together with materials developed by Ms Landsmann and Ms Zeilinger.
- Instead of a mid-semester test you will have to do a presentation.
- You will have to participate much more actively in class than in a regular EBC2 class.
This pilot course is aimed at students interested in new activities and willing to try them out. You will not need either the EBC2 coursebook or the New Handbook of Business English for this course. However, this pilot is intended to have the same level of difficulty as regular EBC2 courses and covers many of the same core topics. If you pass it, you will be able to proceed to a regular EBC3 class; there may also be the opportunity to continue with an EBC3 pilot class in summer semester 2020.
