From chat to linguistics
  • Hallo K!…………………..Ich möchte Education (can't find the German word!) an der Universität studieren, so jetzt bin ich an den Geschichten über es in den Nachrichten interessiert - unglucklicherweise gibt es viele Änderungen jetzt, also muß ich neue Sachen jeden Tag erlernen!Aber wirklich bin ich an viele Sachen interessiert - ich kann nicht für langes konzentrieren!
  • Hallo L!……..An welcher Universität möchtest Du studieren? Und übrigens, wenn Du sagen willst, daß Du "education" (in Sinne: Lehrerin zu werden) studiern willst, auf Deutsch sagt man "Lehramt", also Du kannst sagen: "Ich möchte Mathematik und Chemie auf Lehramt studieren." Das heißt du willst danach Mathematik und Chemie in einer Schule unterrichten. Wenn du aber "education" im Sinne von Techniken der Lehre (also wie, auf welche Art und Weise usw), dann ist es besser "Pädagogik" zu sagen. "Ich möchte Pädagogik studieren".

Roles and imagesPeers on-line
  • We tend to prefer small groups than large
  • We can normally function better with informal rather than formal situations
  • We would usually try and avoid confrontational and awkward situations

Especially when you are younger, we tend to think we are alone in feeling like this and everyone else is more confident and skilful!

(Sandra Cornbleet, Ronald Carter)
