Learning unit contents

IMPORTANT: TEACHING LANGUAGES = FRENCH AND GERMAN.
- the student will learn about the structure of the German language
- the student will acquire a few notions of usual vocabulary in German (how to introduce him self, how to say hello, how to tell wich languages he can speak...)
- the student will learn basic grammar rules (conjugating - present tense, negation of a sentence, numbers, time, ...)
Skills: listening comprehension, reading comprehension, writing (grammar / vocabulary).
We will really begin with speaking  in "Allemand 2".

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

In connection with the KLOs, when leaving HEC, the students who  learned German will be able to communicate efficiently in German, taking into account the multicultural and international features of their environment.
This course will help students to communicate efficiently, internally and externally, about a company, organization or project; it will will allow students to improve their proficiency in German as a foreign language; and it will  allow students to raise their awareness of the multicultural and international features of their environment.
At the end of the course "Allemand 1", the students should reach level A1+ (European Language Portfolio)
