New Challenges for Teaching at Institutes of Higher Education/Universities'
Agenda  ¦  18/04/2012  ¦  Germany Germany

This year, the discussion concerning multilingualism is to focus on the areas of “the economy”, “the employment market” and “integration”. Using analysis and discussion, the conference aims to shed light on the challenges involved in multilingualism policies and their implementation in the EU and its institutions. A further goal is to examine the intercultural aspects that impact upon the realization of such policies. Special emphasis will be paid to the role intercultural aspects play in the heterogeneously comprised lecture rooms at colleges and universities. Closely connected to this is the question of the purpose and quality of study paths that are offered and occur in a foreign language. 

The programme is available here.

There is no doubt that the fact that I'm multilingual and have learnt more languages since when I was a little boy, has meant that I can easily learn new languages.
