Module summary

The module builds naturally on material covered in Beginning Bulgarian Semester 1. Classes progress onto using the language for less immediate but no less important matters. You will learn to talk about future events, inquiring about the weather, for example, or putting together a plan for the days ahead. You will also be taught how to relate past events, how to make complaints and tell people what to do.In language everything hangs on everything else - therefore, the module is only suitable for students with some prior knowledge of Bulgarian, i.e. completion of Beginning Bulgarian Semester 1 or equivalent. Teaching will be in small-group classes typically twice a week throughout Semester 2. For further information, please contact the module tutor Mrs S. Momova (s.b.momova@leeds.ac.uk).

Objectives

To consolidate the work done in semester 1 and increase the student's basic vocabulary, grammar and syntax to help them survive on a visit to, or exchange in, the Republic of Bulgaria.

Syllabus

Most of the principal grammatical constructions will be introduced so that by the end of the semester the student should be able to cope with basic situations in everyday student life.

Teaching methods

Largely oral based and communicative with the emphasis on listening and responding.



Methods of assessment

Two assignments, together with the completion of required practical grammatical and syntactical exercises and a 1 hour examination at the end of the semester.
