All candidates for the Lehrdiplom in English - including native speakers - must complete the module "Language Skills for Teachers (Sprachkompetenzprüfung Englisch)."
"Language Skills for Teachers" is a one-semester module that focuses on the language skills required by teachers of English in the classroom (e.g. error analysis and common sources of error, pedagogical grammar and contrastive issues affecting German-speaking learners).
Students can book this module during their Master studies, as part of the elective component of their studies in English Literature and/or Linguistics. However, it can also be completed later, during the Lehrdiplom studies.
Note: Students must pass the Sprachkompetenzprüfung before being allowed to book the module Fachdidaktik II.
