German Language Zone
Deutsch: Lehren und Lernen is the Language Zone for teachers of German at all levels and in all sectors, available to ALL members. It includes articles on teaching German, on the German language and on contemporary Germany. There are also reviews of publications about Germany and of resources for teaching German, plus details of forthcoming events. It includes regular News and Notes sections informing readers about cultural and political events in the German-speaking countries. DLL aims to provide a link between different educational sectors in which German is taught as a foreign language, from primary through secondary and into adult, further and higher education. Articles are in English or German. Contributions reach us from inside and outside the UK. Contributions submitted to Deutsch: Lehren und Lernen are peer reviewed and published online subject to approval by independent referees.
