Courses & Registration

Students

Our interdisciplinary language course program covers the following courses:

  • Professional English as compulsory courses
  • Language courses in English and other languages as electives
  • German as a foreign language for international students
  • Intecultural Communication seminars as electives

Not only RWU students may participate in courses offered by CLIC, but also students from the University of Education Weingarten as well as external guest students.

The CLIC language lecturers are almost exclusively native speakers. If a language is spoken in multiple parts of the world, as it is especially the case with English and Spanish, CLIC strives to offer a large variety of accents and dialects. Our English teachers are originally from Great Britain, Ireland, the US, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, the lecturers for Spanish come from Spain as well as Latin America.

Foreign Languages as Elective Courses

For more information about the CLIC language program please see  My Campus (LSF).

With the exception of English, not every language is offered as a beginners' course each semester. Please have a look at My Campus (LSF) to find out in which terms your preferred course is offered.

We highly recommend to allow for at least three to four semesters for learning a new language. Skills on levels A2 to B1 (according to CEFR) are generally needed to communicate reasonably and effectively in a foreign language.

If you already have skills in a certain language (e.g. 4-5 years of French/Italian/Spanish at school),  it is possible to start on a higher course level. To find the adequate course respectively level, please read the course descriptions in LSF or ask CLIC for help. If you aren't sure about your current level, you can take a quick placement test here. Some Language Publishers also provide online placement tests for free.
