Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Due to globalisation and increased mobility in the world multilingualism has become an issue of major importance in research. In this class our focus will be on the multilingual mind. We are going to explore the representation of multilingual knowledge in the human mind plus the development of that knowledge. Although bilingualism research will form part of the basis of our discussions, our main attention will be directed towards third language acquisition. Topics of particular interest will be theoretical models of multilingual development and use, multilingual processing as well as the interdependence of social and linguistic aspects of multilingualism. Third language learning in the classroom will also present a topic of discussion.
Assessment: class participation, paper presentation
