KurzbeschreibungThis course is open to non-native speakers of English at Bachelor and Master level who have already reached at least a C1 level on the CEFR scale. It consists of literature and language components and is designed to sharpen students' appreciation and understanding of a range of types of literary texts.
LernzielPart II is a continuation of the English Language and Literature Part I course taught in HS 2016 but can be attended independently of Part I. The course is designed to challenge the way English literature is viewed; help students to become more discerning readers; help them gain a deeper enjoyment of the literature they read in English as a result of a better understanding of how literary texts work; and equip them with language skills they can transfer to other areas of their academic and private lives.
InhaltA selection of short literary texts are discussed in class in order to illustrate the main features of narrative fiction and to enhance students' speaking and argumentation skills; a novel and film adaptations of the novel are also dealt with. Discussions of the literary texts are linked to short creative writing tasks, which are designed to enhance students' pleasure of writing, to improve the accuracy of their writing, and to exemplify some of the challenges authors face when writing narrative fiction. Students also give a short presentation on the context in which the literary texts were written as a means of practicing their formal speaking and presentation skills.
