The meeting in Chemnitz focusses on 3 special aspects:

  • Teaching observation

Participants can visit two types of teaching, English for primary school teachers and English for adult education. All participants will be provided with course descriptions and asked to prepare for these visits.

  • Stake holders / language service providers as job opportunities

Participants can choose whether they wish to visit a bilingual secondary school where geography is taught in English, a pre-university college where foreign web-perspective students from abroad are taught in skills, in particular German, which allows them to study at the German university, the local Volkshochschule (extra-mural language courses), or a translation company in the widest sense.

  • Research methodologies and discussion

Active researchers like PhD students can attend the PhD Symposium for English Language & Linguistics, take part in an eye-tracking experiment, and visit the virtual reality lab and discuss the opportunities of including these aspects in their own teaching and career.
