The ‘Literature – art – discourse’ course series covers current trends in literature, art and culture which are shaping discourse in Germany. Every session focuses on an author or artist who provides insight into their works or specialist field. Every session is preceded by a preparation phase (the times of which can be arranged individually) with language-learning content (vocabulary, grammar, style) which uses the work or topic area as a starting point. A ‘euro package’ is provided containing key course materials.
