Languages for specific purposes


In addition to our "classical" language courses, we would also like to draw your attention to our language courses with a specific focus.

In the winter semester we offer a multilingual Romance language course and we would  also like point out  that we also offer subject-specific courses in German and English in the areas of scientific or business language. These special courses are 2 semester hours per week and are worth 3 ECTS credits.
