Vocabulary Training

Do you sometimes lack the right words in different situations? When packing your bag in the morning, you forgot your pencil case, and now you have to ask the person sitting next to you for an eraser, pencil leads or stapler... You have no idea what the lecturer means when he asks you for the remote control or the chalk?  In the supermarket, you want to know where to find the bags of chips and the saleswoman suddenly talks about aisles and shelves... In your shared apartment, you should first set the table, then clear it and wipe it down - or was it the other way around?

We would like to support you in using and understanding the right words in such situations. For this purpose, we have set up a Moodle page where you can expand and train your vocabulary for different everyday situations in your student life. At the beginning of each topic, you will first learn the new vocabulary. This is followed by exercises to consolidate the new vocabulary. Most of the exercises are self-correcting, so you get direct feedback. The exercises can be repeated as often as you like.

If you have ideas or suggestions for a new vocabulary topic, please use the chat on the Moodle page. If you notice any mistakes in the exercises, feel free to post them in the chat. We will then take care of it!

You can sign up for the self-study course on Moodle. Just log in to Moodle and click on “All Courses” on the left. In the “Search Courses” box, enter the short course name “WSTB1B2” and then click “Start”. You can use the enrollment key “schatz” to enroll yourself.

Here is all important information for the Moodle course summarized:

  • Full course name: Deutsch als Fremd­sprache: Wortschatztraining B1 / B2
  • Short course name: WSTB1B2
  • Enrollment key: schatz

Have fun and success exploring!

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is "Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen" (closer to Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dort­mund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on Campus Nord. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. The university can also be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr Transport Association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. One ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S") is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the "Technologiepark" and (via Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.

The Airport Express is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.
