9-10 November - Bochum - Assessing Academic Language Proficiency and Languages for Specific Academic Purposes

The aim of the symposium is to systematize the activities in various (sub-)disciplines (such as Foreign Language Teaching (CLIL, EAP), German as a Foreign and Second Language, teaching of heritage languages) and thus to benefit from approaches and considerations of other participants, to ultimately advance the assessment of academic language proficiency and languages for specific academic purposes in all contexts.
