This course is designed primarily for ERASMUS and other exchange students who are studying Applied Linguistics, Translation, and similar subjects. It is worth 3 ECTS points. It is followed by a separate English vocabulary course in summer semester, which is also worth 3 ECTS points. The CEFR Level of both courses is C1.
The aim of both courses is to increase students' command of English vocabulary.
In winter semester, we begin with a brief theoretical introduction. This is followed by a close reading of a text from the field of applied linguistics on the differences between spoken and written language; the text will be supplied at the beginning of the semester. The course leader will also make available an extensive vocabulary list for the text, which will serve as a springboard for further work on lexical relations in modern English. There will also be comprehension exercises on the text itself and further vocabulary-building exercises on some of the wide variety of different fields that are encountered in the real-life examples used in the text. Particular emphasis will be placed on expanding students' command of academic vocabulary. Students are encouraged to participate actively and to introduce topics of their own as well.
The companion course, in summer semester, will begin with a brief theoretical introduction. This will be followed by practical work on derivational morphology, vocabulary in context, semantic relations between vocabulary items, and many other topics. We will explore particular areas of English vocabulary in depth. We will also look briefly at the history of dictionaries and thesauruses. We will endeavour to cover topic areas that were not covered in winter; some of the work in summer semester will be related to current sociopolitical and socioeconomic developments. Students will be encouraged to participate actively and to introduce topics of their own as well. In each semester, there are weekly exercise sheets to complete, plus a final assignment to be handed in.

ERASMUS and other exchange students may also be interested in my ERASMUS courses "Exploring English Grammar -- the world of clauses” (Monday 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.) and "Written Expression” (Tuesday 10 a.m. to 12 noon); the latter covers exactly the same content, at exactly the same pace, as "[spr] Written Expression (Intermediate)", groups 3 and 4, so students in fact have three alternative times at which they can take my Written Expression course (Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon). Note, however, that the Wednesday and Thursday groups are officially working towards 2 ECTS points, whereas ERASMUS students are typically working towards 3, and will therefore be doing extra work; the additional workload would cover approximately a weekend’s work.
My B.A. course "[spr] Phonetics with Listening Practice (British)” (Tuesday or Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.) may also be of interest to some Erasmus students, but the number of available places is limited.
