The seminar will concentrate on all aspects of language aptitude from an interdisciplinary perspective (classical SLA concepts, aptitude testing, psychology of language learning/aptitude, psycholinguistics, cognitive neuroscience), backed up by practical insights into this topic by own research projects of the students on differences between high and low aptitude second language learners.

A further aim of this course is to sensitize participants towards the importance of individual differences in language aptitude for the teaching of foreign languages and the implications for language teaching and language education.
