Sarah Leek

Hello, I’m Sarah Leek. I come from the UK originally, but I have lived and worked in Germany as an English teacher and trainer since 2008. I studied modern foreign languages at the University of Leicester and can speak French, German, Spanish and a little Catalan. After my studies, I trained to become an English teacher and hold the CELTA and Delta qualifications. I have worked with pupils and students aged 2-80 over the years! I am also a huge fan of online learning, having completed most of my own postgraduate study online.

My current research interests are education management, teacher training, and academic writing support for staff and students. In my free time, I love learning languages, hiking, and maintaining my own professional development as a teacher and trainer. I’m also a part-time student on the Academic Writing Development and Research MA at Coventry University.

English programme at the University of Siegen Language Center

We currently offer courses from A2-C1 level of the CEFR. Our B1 courses are offered in semi-compact format (4 SWS), and our B2 and C1 courses take place in regular format (2 SWS). Our A2 course will be piloted in WiSe 2019/20 as a 2 SWS course.
Each General English course level consists of three parts, e.g. B1.1, B1.2 and B1.3, to provide learners with ample opportunity to refresh and enhance all four language skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing. Moreover, students will review and build on key grammatical structures for the level in question and broaden their vocabulary in at least three main fields/topics per semester.
Students learn in different ways, and this is reflected in our assessment model for the General English programme. Students will be able to track their progress through formative and continuous assessment (mid-term tests, online exercises, presentations/podcasts and homework) and also a summative test at the end of the semester. Furthermore, students completing a course level (B1.3, B2.3 and C1.3) will take an oral exam at the end of term.

We also offer courses for specific purposes. If you are interested in these courses please visit this site.
