The 24th Biennial Conference 2011 of the German Society for Foreign Language Research (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Fremdsprachenforschung, DGFF) will be held September 28 to October 1 at the University of Hamburg, Germany. The conference theme is: Globalization – Migration – Foreign Language Learning and Teaching (Globalisierung – Migration – Fremdsprachenunterricht). I have created a link to the official conference website (which is still under construction). If you are interested in getting to know more about this event, please click here.
Workshop 8, organized by me, focuses on the following topic: “Enhancing Young Learners’ Developing Concepts of Self and Other in the Primary FL Classroom / Interkulturelles Lehren und Lernen im Fremdsprachenunterricht an Grundschulen“. More detailed information is available on the official website now, both in German and in English. If you wish to issue a brief statement on this, please contact me via the conference website.
