Deutsche Gesellschaft für Fremdsprachenforschung (DGFF)


25th Conference of the DGFF
(Deutsche Gesellschaft für Fremdsprachenforschung / German Association of Research into Language Learning and Teaching)
from 25 - 28 September 2013
at Augsburg University

Thank you for taking part in the 25th Conference of the DGFF at Augsburg University.

The 25th DGFF Conference with its motto of …

Sprachenausbildung (language education)
Sprachen bilden aus (languages educate)
Bildung aus Sprachen (education through languages)

focused on the teaching and learning of languages in the field of conflict between these two different concepts of education: the training side of language instruction ("Ausbildung" = making people competent in languages for further study and jobs) and the idea that learning a new language leads to self-formation ("Bildung").

Thank you for interesting talks and lively discussions.
