Offers for Employees
Many lecture courses are now taught in English, with some faculty members wanting to improve their speaking skills as a result. The two-day online “English for Teachers” workshop addresses this very issue and supports teachers at all four universities to further develop their English-language teaching skills in a compact and practical way.
Individual Language Learning and Coaching
In the tutoring program, students can independently expand their language skills with tutorial support during semester breaks. In addition, the tutoring program offers cross-language writing advice – for term papers as well as other texts. Tandem learning is also possible throughout the summer. Advice on this and other self-study materials is available at the Self-Study Center in GW2. Feedback on English-language texts of all kinds and further assistance with writing in English is provided by the WRITER’S HELP DESK through individual one-on-one online consultations by appointment. These offers are free of charge for students of the University of Bremen.
The semester-long language program for the winter semester 2022/23 will commence on October 17, 2022.
