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.

In the long term I think that being multilingual is of great importance to understanding why other people from different countries act differently.
