Course Description

Making the transition from former pupil to future teacher requires students of English to look at the English classroom from a new angle and to familiarize themselves with a wide range of theoretical and empirical as well as pedagogical concepts that are involved in the teaching and learning of English as a foreign language. The aim of this obligatory course is to introduce students to the field(s) of Englischdidaktik and Applied Linguistics by providing a state-of-the-art overview of relevant issues and current debates. These include the following:

  • the different roles of English as a national and as a global language,
  • language teacher education and teacher development,
  • language learning theories,
  • the teaching and learning of the language system and language use (pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar) and the four skills (listening, speaking, reading, writing),
  • European and national language learning policies, e.g. educational standards (Bildungsstandards), and curricula,
  • historical aspects of and recent trends in language teaching methodology,
  • ways of conceptualizing and developing intercultural communicative competence as well as
  • diagnosing, evaluating and assessing language proficiency.


These issues will not only be considered from the established 'English as a foreign language' (EFL) perspective in which English is primarily learnt in order to be able to communicate with native speakers. Taking into account recent research into how English is used as an international lingua franca (ELF) among speakers of different first languages, the course will also pose the question to what extent and in what ways this type of language use should be incorporated into current ELT practice. Course requirements will be announced in the first session.
