Orthography and language reflection
If you want to teach German in the primary level, you should be willing to enable children to use the language competently and to encourage their reading and writing motivation. This assumes that you yourself are enthusiastic about the German language and literature - including children's literary texts. For both teaching and studying, it is desirable if you are not only interested in the linguistic and literary studies, but also in the didactic basics of the subject. Since oral and written communication play an important role, especially in German lessons, you should also have the ability to express yourself appropriately. We require a good knowledge of spelling and grammar.
Working as a teacher in elementary schools involves other, in particular educational, challenges in addition to specialist teaching, which you should look forward to with pleasure. In this context, it can be helpful for your decision to study and for the study itself if you have already gained experience in dealing with children.
The aim of the bachelor's degree in German is to impart scientific, pedagogical, didactic, learning and developmental psychological knowledge and insights. This will enable you to give child-oriented German lessons. It should develop basic oral and written communication skills as well as the ability to deal with texts. You acquire basic knowledge for planning and designing teaching processes. General and individual learning requirements and
learning processes are taken into account.
With the teaching profession-related bachelor's degree you acquire the academic degree of the Bachelor of Education. This represents a first professional academic degree, which, however, does not yet qualify for the assumption of a teaching post. Before you can achieve your dream job as a teacher, you still have to complete a master’s degree and preparatory service. Due to the professional and pedagogical skills acquired during the course, however, this bachelor's degree can also offer career prospects outside of the teaching profession.
