“Admiration, antagonism & ambivalence” was what characterized British images of Germany before WWI according to the historian Richard Scully. This course explores representations of Germany, its people and its language, and how these images have changed historically. We will explore contexts such as Tatort, German citizenship classes, the World Cup, the German language according to Mark Twain, and stereotypes of Germany in the Anglophone press.

The assessment requirement for this Spoken English course is an oral language test at the end of the semester, with the grade to be added to the result from Written English. A podcast and group discussions will count towards active participation and will provide students with valuable language feedback.
