In addition to the language requirements of the various curricula, students at the MCI can choose additional elective languages for all study programs. Such additional foreign language qualifications on a voluntary basis strengthen students’ international orientation and intercultural competence and further improve their chances on the job market.
"Good teaching is interactive and communicative. I see teaching and learning as a joint process with the students, with a focus on activity-based teaching."
Claudia Moser, Lecturer German
"A pragmatic classroom and interculturality are essential in my language teaching."
Anika Schmid, Lecturer German and Spanish
"My teaching is dynamic and participatory, and requires your full engagement, for I believe that a course is as good as it is made by both the lecturer and the participants together."
Isabelle Guibert, Lecturer French and Spanisch
"Languages and lighting a spark for them in others are my passion: with diverse methods and space for joyful trying and experiencing all different skills. We grow and learn together. Because communication means first and foremost 'to be connected, to be related'."
Christine Fritz, Lecturer Italian
"In my class you will not only learn Spanish but experience it: all (inter)cultural aspects, through dynamic and interactive activities. Together we will develop all language skills, have fun and discover plenty of new things."
Jesus Manuel Millán Vidal, Lecturer Spanish
" 'If they are your words, they can become your language.' (Bernard Dufeu) - for me, at the beginning of language acquisition is the wish to express yourself. Supported by different communicative methodes (above all language psychodramaturgy) I see myselfas a companion to confident language expression."
Annette Demattio-Neuner, Lecturer German
"Successful teaching thrives on enthusiasm and motivation. Being enthusiastic about a language means being able to learn it in a joyful way. It is my job to create this positive setting for the students"
Birgit Haider-Müller, Lecturer German
"As an Italian native speaker it is my intention to stimulate motivation and curiosity in students in order for them to have a meaningful experience with the Italian language."
Mariantonia Tramite, Lecturer Italian
