The courses are intended as preparation for the final state exam (Staatsexamen) for modularized students of secondary and primary education (Grundschule, Mittelschule, Realschule, Gymnasium).

Key topics of TEFL, relevant to the exam, will be discussed in order to give the participants impulses for a further, more in-depth study and individual focus. 

Enrollment takes place over WueCampus.
