Outline Activities
Since the curriculum for the second foreign languages has been reduced over the last few years, FLT has to strive for a teaching method which shortens the FL learning and acquisition process. Trying to fulfil these tasks, this author's German FL-classes for Japanese studends have been oriented towards the Bilingual Method. Thus, classroom management is in principle done in the target-language, while language-related explanations are made with the aid of the learners mother-tongue.
Dialogues serve as the basis teaching materials and as scripts for role-playing. The dialogues are practised so intensivly that the learners are able to perform them offhand. After the role-plays their phrase-patterns are modified and tied into the already existing linguistic repertoire of the learners by various drills and exercises. Finally the learners write and perform their own role-plays. Thus, "Communication", "Grammar" and Composition" are the three pillars of this FLT-method.
In order to gain empirical material for documenting the learning and teaching process, the semester-exams and students questionaires, these data serve as research material to reflect and improve FLT at Japanese universities.

Current and Past Project
  • In order to continue the development of learning aids for the FL2 learning, the Faculty of Languages and Cultures and the State Language Institut of the Ruhr University (Germany) are planning the development LL-materials for German and Japanese FL-learners.
  • In order to continue the development of learning aids for the FL2 learning the development of multilingual CALL LL systems is planed. The planed device is for FLL of German, French, Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Russian.
  • In order to continue the development of learning aids for the second foreign language learning the development of a multilingual teaching and learning device for mobile-phones is planed. The planed device is for learning of German, French, Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Esperanto. It is aimed to turn mobile-phones into a foreign language learning device. The contend of each unite will be the same in every language. Each unite will be equipped with animated or silent pictures and voice recordings. The lines of each unite will have a length of around 30 words.
