Description:
The University of Braunschweig (Germany) is organising a summer school “Linguistic Theory in Second and Foreign Language Teaching” that will take place from August 31 till September 4, 2018.

The school brings together research in experimental linguistics and most successful practices in teaching second/foreign Language. The school offers keynote lectures by distinguished scholars from the USA, Germany and the UK and guided working sessions in English and German.

We are inviting both young and experienced scholars in applied linguistics to share their professional knowledge and head a 2-hour workshop in one of the following areas of studies:

- Current trends in practice of teaching languages
- Applied linguistics: from theoretical assumptions to increased language proficiency
- Research methods in second/foreign language acquisition
- Insights from research in second/third language acquisition and their applicability in teaching
- Theories of grammar in language teacher training
- Proficiency assessment and language competence
- Corrective feedback and increase in language proficiency

The chair of the session manages a thematic discussion and give a talk that may include a practical component.

Best regards,
