The Language Centre is a centre of competence not only for teaching languages but also for contemporary didactics and intercultural competence. It plays a vital role in the university’s internationalisation process and allows students to complement their studies by learning a foreign language - a key skill in today’s professional world.
We offer courses in English, French, Spanish, Russian, Italian and Dutch. They are a mixture of ESP courses (English for Specific Purposes) and general language courses - for beginners, advanced or intensive speakers. Alongside the obligatory ESP courses, students can attend non-obligatory and extra-curricular courses. These are especially useful for those students who are planning a semester abroad, looking to take on an international work assignment or for those who are simply interested in learning a foreign language for private purposes.
You will find information about all of the courses by logging onto the platform STUD.IP which is also where you can register for the individual courses.
Language courses in the winter semester 22/23
Our regular courses- consisting of the general language module English Communication Skills, Tech Talk, which focuses on technical English, and the business language-focused modules Business English and International Business and Communication - will be supplemented by a new module from WS22/23: UNIcert II - English for Academic Purposes.
Extracurricular courses (optional, no CP)
English: In preparation for participation in our elective modules, the Language Centre offers a preparation service at CEFR level A2.
French/Swedish: If you would like to try your hand at a new language, you have the choice this semester between French and Swedish courses at levels A1.1 and A2.1. Lessons in both languages take place exclusively online.
German as a foreign language: For our international students in Wismar and Warnemünde, German as a foreign language courses are available online, digitally and in person.
Guest studentship is possible for interested parties from outside the university. Applications, for which a fee is required, are available at the Servicepoint. Participation is only possible, however, if the classes are not full.
For university colleagues, participating in languages courses is free of charge. Please contact the respective lecturer for availability.
