Welcome to the Chair of Foreign Language Education of the FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg!

We are involved in all teacher education programmes for students aiming for a teaching degree in English, French, Italian and Spanish. For our students studying to become teachers we offer courses focusing on the teaching of language, literature and culture. In addition, we offer courses in first and second language acquisition in the two Master’s programmes “English Studies” and “Linguistics”.

In our research projects, we examine different aspects of multilingualism. Our research interests include the following areas: bilingual education in kindergarten/pre-school, primary and secondary school; factors affecting first and second language acquisition; early foreign language learning and teaching; computer-assisted language learning and teaching.
