You can read the mathematical term in German in the picture above? Congratulations! If not – don't worry. Many international students face this linguistic challenge in the early stages of their studies.
With a language trainer, you will acquire a basic mathematical vocabulary and practice expressing your own questions and thoughts adequately. You will also deal with German as scientific language and explore how speaking and writing at the university differs from everyday language.
Training in study skills
Student trainers impart knowledge about different types of courses and help you develop techniques for good learning. They will also cover important topics of self management and time management.
In intercultural training you will receive information about the German education system, work out what culture is all about and analyse different communication styles.
