Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Conference theme: ‘Shifting Paradigms: Informed Responses’

Over the past years, education has seen many shifts in the areas of teaching methodology, assessment, and use of technology; to mention a few. Learner-centered classrooms, collaboration, and transformative education focus on process in addition to content. These are just a few of the changes that have occurred. Education reform is everywhere as teachers and administrators attempt to create schools and classes for the 21st century. To do our jobs properly, we need to be aware of these changes. And as language educators we need to show how language learning and teaching can help achieve the goals of the future. We invite language educators, administrators, policy makers, and others to join us at ECLL 2013 as we share what we are doing in our classrooms and at our schools to respond to the shifts happening around us.
