Faculty of International Economics and Management

German Language Department

The German Language Department is striving for the assurance of the most favourable conditions for the training of future economists in the German language and for being the university-level centre of the accumulation and the dissemination of the knowledge about the German language and the German-speaking countries. The Department is focused on the application of modern communication methodologies in teaching, which are focused on instilling verbal and writing language skills adequate to the specific communicative situation. The development and maintenance of international contacts of the University with the higher education establishments of German-speaking countries, such as universities of Konstanz (www.uni-konstanz.de) and Bremen (www.uni-bremen.de) (Germany), and Vienna Economics University (www.wu-wien.ac.at) (Austria) are yet another important aspect of the Department's work.

The efforts of the Department are implemented in specific positive results confirmed with victories of students of the Department at the National German Language Olympics every year (starting from 2002 without any exception).

Teachers teach German to more than 900 students every year.

History of the German Language Department

The establishment of the German Language Department (the first specialised foreign-language department in a non-linguistic higher education establishment) has legitimately resulted from the novel history of the KNEU. The attention paid by the management to the improvement of the teaching process efficiency, the active and consecutive development of the partnership with Konstanz University and Vienna Economics University have been the drivers (both internally and externally) for the decision made by the Academic Council on 26 April 2001 to organise the German Language Department as a new department in the university.
