Speak English with oConvo

Immerse yourself in the English language without packing a suitcase with oConvo

4.2.2022 | DIT Public Relations

For students who are curious about other cultures and want to speak English, the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) offers the online conversation platform oConvo. This allows participants to immerse themselves in the English language once a week without having to pack a suitcase. oConvo starts on 21 March and takes place online every Monday from 6.30 pm to 8 pm.

oConvo is open to all students in Grade 7 or above. They should bring basic conversational skills in English and an interest in other cultures. oConvo is about teaching English in an entertaining way and improving language skills. The interests of the participants are taken into account. From making music together, exchanging recipes, talking about local customs to clarifying grammatical questions or idioms. Always in English, of course.

The fun of the language is not neglected, but the necessary seriousness and the demand to learn something at the virtual meetings are no less important. The overall coordination of the platform lies with Prof. Dr. Georg Christian Steckenbauer, the Dean of ECRI. Scientific and methodological-didactic support is provided by Prof. Dr. Michelle Cummings-Koether and Claudia Nikitsin. Students who actively participate in oConvo will be rewarded with a participation certificate at the end of the semester.

Those who meet the criteria and would like to participate in the Online Conversation Platform oConvo can register by emailing elisabeth.mueller@th-deg.de and start their English language journey into foreign cultures.
