SPRECHstunde in the SPRECHraum

Many language learners want to improve their pronunciation as well as practice speaking or communicating in their target language. All of this can be done in the SPRECHraum (I3.407, access via the Mediathek, I3.401). The SPRECHraum is FOR ALL LANGUAGE LEARNERS and ALL TARGET LANGUAGES!

In the SPRECHraum you can play (language learning) games, do exercises with your tandem or learning partner (e.g. SEAGULL) or record yourself while speaking (by using the Sanako software, see tutorials on the computers).

On certain fixed dates during the semester, the SPRECHstunde takes place. In every session, a specific training method for speaking and/or pronunciation will be presented. This offer aims at specific target languages. Pleace see the schedule below for topics, dates and target languages.

Student testimonials

“Finally a real exercise!”

“It is helpful to listen to your own recording!”

“Especially helpful if you want to practice transcribing for your phonetics class.”

“The ‘Sanako-Player’ is very helpful. It enables you to repeat, read out texts and record your own voice. Alternating between the original file and your own voice, recording during playback helps you to recognize incorrect pronunciation.”

“Working with Sanako was a pleasant experience. The software is easy to use and contains all relevant functions. Recording your own voice is very useful for recognizing your own mistakes.”


- The SPRECHstunde is an offer for autonomous learning. It is no instructed class.

- Information about available materials and possible activities can be found in the PANDA course “Sprachen Lernen in der Mediathek”. Students who want to practice communicating in the target language can use the SPRECHraum during the opening hours of the Mediathek.

- Attending the SPRECHstunde will give you an additional ECTS point for “Autonomes Lernen”.
