Welcome to TEFL at Giessen University

TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. It is a field of study that explores the theory and practice of teaching and learning English in different educational settings and contexts.

At Giessen University, we offer a range of courses and programs for students who want to become qualified English teachers or researchers in TEFL. Whether you are interested in teaching English at primary, secondary, or tertiary level, or in pursuing a PhD in TEFL, you will find a suitable option for you.

Our TEFL courses cover various topics, such as:

  • Language learning and teaching methods
  • English language skills and systems
  • English literature and culture
  • Curriculum design and evaluation
  • Teaching English to young learners
  • Teaching English with digital media
  • Intercultural communication and education
  • Language teacher education and development

Our TEFL programs are based on the latest research in the field. We also collaborate with other institutions and organizations, such as Saint Mary’s University Halifax (Canada) to exchange ideas and experiences. Our students have the opportunity to participate in practical training, study abroad, and research projects.
