Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Bachelor of Arts English/American Studies programme


Next to modules in Linguistics, Literature, Cultural Studies and language classes, the option including teacher training will introduce you to the basics of teaching English as a foreign language.


The foundation module “Fachdidaktik”, will enable you to master core theoretical concepts and methods of foreign language education. In trying to practise what we preach, these will be studied, tried, tested and reflected in a variety of hands-on, practical exercises. Issues in ELT will be discussed in the light of state-of-the-art research in ELT-pedagogy.

The module “Practical Classroom Studies” (school-based training with a preparatory and follow-up seminar) applies to BA students only who are planning to take English as a second subject in a 60-SP MEd-programme. In all other cases, this module is part of the MEd-programme. In this module, you will acquire competence in lesson planning and gain initial experience in teaching English as a foreign language.
