Short Description

Spanish is offered as a teaching subject (or supplementary teaching subject) within the bachelor's programme Technical Education. As first subject, a vocational subject must be studied. Please note the subject combination options.

The Bachelor’s degree programme in Technical Education centres around the technologies, materials and activities of a trade or industry and the teaching of these. Students are prepared for working with adolescents facing the competing interests of the requirements of companies and the expectations of society within and outside the school environment. After completing the polyvalent Bachelor’s degree, students can embark on a Master’s degree programme, the completion of which is an entry requirement for the preparatory phase of teacher training at vocational schools or for a specialist Master’s degree programme. At Leibniz Universität Hannover, the Bachelor’s degree programme in Technical Education comprises three areas: students choose one of the following vocational subject areas – Site Engineering; Plant Operations and Manufacturing of Wood Products; Colour Technology and Interior Decoration; Electrical Engineering; Metals Technology; and Food Science. In addition, they take a teaching subject and the area of Key Transferable Skills, including Vocational and Business Education, and practical training at a school. Students who select Spanish as a teaching subject acquire thorough specialist knowledge of Spanish Studies (literature and cultural sciences, linguistics and teaching methodology) at the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures.

Areas of Focus

Course Content

Students who take Spanish as a teaching subject first take basic modules in which they learn the key skills and knowledge required for further study. These are followed by advanced seminars (advanced modules) in which the skills and knowledge gained are expanded on and developed. During language practice courses, students gradually improve the language level they had before starting university. After a year or so, they start learning about teaching methodology, i.e. the teaching and learning of foreign languages in school-based contexts. They gain fundamental insights into literature and cultural sciences as well as linguistics.
