Das Verhältnis zwischen Fach- und Sprachkompetenz im DaF-Unterricht für nichtlinguistische Fachrichtungen in Russland
The balance between the subject content transfer and the development of competent language use is constantly brought discussed within the realm of the didactics of “German as a second language”. The starting point for this differentiation should be based on a certain objective that depends on the subject being studied. The chosen objective enables to determine the curriculum content. On the one hand, one cannot thereby ignore the transfer of specialized knowledge since the “German as a second language” class is among other things intended to form a foreign world picture. Thus the economists need to be well aware of the key concepts within their subject. Later it will help them to succeed in communication with international colleagues in their professional life. Therefore, the curriculum tailored for economists should determine for the typical situations of intercultural professional communication that may result in misunderstanding between conversation partners, and these situations should underlie the corresponding training course.
