English, on Friday, March 27 & 28, 2014, at Leuphana University, Lüneburg.
The symposium organized by the Writing Center for Academic English with the
Center for Modern Languages, will offer participants the opportunity to

practices, sharing our research projects and results, and networking with
other faculty and staff.

second language learning will be able to benefit as well. Junior
researchers, doctoral students, and student tutors/consultants are
