Welcome to the University of Paderborn! We hope you enjoy and profit from your stay with us.
We offer two full (2 x 2hrs/week) English courses for Erasmus (Bachelor) and other incoming students. The Basic Business English for Students of Ecomics and Management Sciences (M.184.3061) assumes passive B2 language skills. The purpose of the course is to provide students with the communication skills required in everyday Business, including telephoning, holding meetings, negotiating, legal Business English, presentation, socializing, smalltalk etc. This course takes place twice a week.
For weaker students (B1) we offer a module, which aims to improved your speaking skills (M.184.3065). The Topics are similar to the Basic Course ( 3061) but the amount of vocabulary and the complexity of the exercises is easier. This course is specifically aimed at incoming students whose language training has not allowed them to practise speaking. This course also takes place 2 times per week and offers the same number of ECTS.
Please note that it is not possible to attend both courses during the same Semester. It is also not possible to attend a Basic course and one of the advanced courses.
