Projects

Studying English at the Language Center is attractive for German as well as foreign students. Since the winter semester 2008/09, different projects have been conducted that seek to improve both language and intercultural competences while focussing on different topics, such as Native American/First Nations Studies, Canadian Studies, theater and performance, and Chicana/o Studies.

Members of the Language Center are well connected to universities and research organizations both in Europe and the Americas.
