German and Spanish

**German** - Our German courses at Manchester give students a solid grounding in German language and the opportunity to explore in depth German culture, linguistics, history and literature. They equip students with the skills and expertise needed to thrive in German-speaking environments, both during their period of residence abroad and following graduation. - Core German language courses at all levels of study are complemented by a variety of other subject areas, including linguistics that teaches you how the language works and a wide range of cultural and historical units that use German-language sources to improve your core language competence, as well as your wider knowledge of the German-speaking countries. - We have specialists in an unusually wide range of German-related subjects, so that you can focus on subjects that really appeal to you in your final year of study. - All our units include a focus on key transferable skills that help to prepare you for the world of work, as well as encouraging you to develop your academic talents. **Spanish** - Gives students a thorough grounding in the language and culture of the Spanish-speaking world as well as the opportunity to learn Catalan. - Alongside their advanced study of Spanish language, students study a range of options in film, history, and literature. Year 3 is spent split between German- and Spanish-speaking countries (on university exchange, work placement, or teaching as an English-language assistant). **Special Features** We offer German and Spanish at both post-A-level and beginners' level; however, applicants to this Joint Hons programme must have an A-level in at least one of the two languages. **German** - Specialisms in German include historical and contemporary linguistics, literary studies, screen studies, gender and sexuality, modern cultural history, minority cultures and Holocaust studies. Our teaching, praised in the Teaching Quality Assessment and by external examiners, is backed up by an innovative Independent Language Learning Programme, enabling students to take control of their own learning experience. The quality of our online teaching and learning resources is highly praised by students and its excellence recognised within the University. **Spanish** - The breadth of expertise among staff across Spanish and Latin American Studies means an unusually rich and broad curriculum. - 80% of staff are first-language Spanish-speakers and language courses are taught by native speakers with specific training.
