Abstract

A balanced teaching of cultural knowledge in foreign language teaching in general and in German lessons in particular is of great importance. To make this possible, some promising approaches have been developed to help learners in the reception of cultural knowledge. The aim of the German teacher is that his or her students acquire not only the linguistic, but also the cultural aspects of German culture. Therefore, much consideration is given to bringing cultural content into the classroom and how different approaches to the didactics of regional studies make this possible. Theories of Weinmann, Hösch, Pauldrach and Zeuner form the theoretical foundation of this work, in which classifications of the cultural approaches as well as their specific characteristics (such as topics, teaching of cultural knowledge, etc.) are explained. In the empirical part of the work, the first step is to identify tasks that aim to provide cultural knowledge transfer from the textbook series Studio 21 (A1.1 - A2.1). This is followed by analysis and classification of the collected tasks. Subsequently, suggestions for improvement and advice for the performance of such tasks in the German lessons for are given based on the results of the analysis.
