Susanne Ehrenreich holds the Chair for Applied Linguistics and English Language Education at the TU Dortmund University. Her main research interests lie in the field of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF), particularly in the  domain of in­ter­na­tio­nal business (English as a Business Lingua Franca/BELF), and the various conceptual, empirical as well as pedagogical facets of BELF and ELF.  Before taking up her post at TU Dortmund University she was a lecturer and assistant professor at the University of Munich (2002-2010). For her post-doc project (Habilitationsstudie) she conducted a seminal study on English as a Business Lingua Franca (BELF) in two German Multinational Corporations (e.g. Ehrenreich 2010, 2016, 2018). As a member of the programme LMU Mentoring for excellent young scholars she received several grants to support her postdoctoral research. In 2004 she completed her PhD on "Residence Abroad and Teacher Education" at LMU Munich (with distinction / summa cum laude). In addition to her academic work, she was also BA-/MA-co-ordinator at the Language Centre of the University of Munich (2008-2010). From 2006 to 2007, she was Acting Professor (Lehrstuhlvertreterin) at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, and in 1997/98 as well as in 2000/01 she taught German as a Lektorin at the University of Limerick, Ireland. She is also a fully qualified teacher and has taught English and Religious Education at secondary schools in Germany (Gymnasium und Realschule) for several years. Susanne Ehrenreich is an active member in a number of national and in­ter­na­tio­nal professional organizations.

Introduction to Teaching English as a Second/Foreign Language - Kurs A

Prof. Dr. Susanne Ehrenreich
Tue, 08-10 am
201

Making the transition from former pupil to future teacher requires students of English to look at the English classroom from a new angle and to familiarize themselves with a wide range of theoretical and empirical as well as pedagogical concepts that are involved in the teaching and learning of English as a foreign language. The aim of this obligatory course is to introduce students to the field(s) of Englischdidaktik and Applied Linguistics by providing a state-of-the-art overview of relevant issues and current debates. These include the following:

- the different roles of English as a national and as a global language,
- language teacher education and teacher development,
- language learning theories,
- the teaching and learning of the language system and language use (pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar) and the four skills (listening, speaking, reading, writing),
- European and national language learning policies, e.g. educational standards (Bildungsstandards), and curricula,
- historical aspects of and recent trends in language teaching methodology,
- ways of conceptualizing and developing intercultural communicative competence as well as
- diagnosing, evaluating and assessing language proficiency.

These issues will not only be considered from the established 'English as a foreign language' (EFL) perspective in which English is primarily learnt in order to be able to communicate with native speakers. Taking into account recent research into how English is used as an international lingua franca (ELF) among speakers of different first languages, the course will also pose the question to what extent and in what ways this type of language use should be incorporated into current ELT practice. Course requirements will be announced in the first session.

How do you and your friends use English? For what purposes and how frequently? Mainly in class or mainly out-of-class? Who do you communicate with, in which contexts? Anecdotal evidence suggests that for Germany’s Generation Z, English has assumed a fairly regular role in their communicative life- worlds. However, up-to-date research on this topic is rare – which is the research gap that we will address in this seminar, which will culminate in a collaborative student presentation at the IAWE conference at Stony Brook University (N.Y. / US) in mid-June 2023. For this purpose, you will explore, in the course of this seminar, your own and your friends’ use of English, using different methodological approaches (from autoethnographic reports to qualitative interviews etc.). Based on your observations and data we will discuss how English can be conceptualized in a way that adequately captures the different ways you – as representatives of Germany’s Gen Z – use English today and also what this might mean in pedagogical terms for you as English teachers and your language classrooms. 
The IAWE conference (International Association of World Englishes) will be held from 15th-17th June 2023 at Stony Brook University on Long Island (N.Y./U.S). A number of seminar participants will have the unique (and maybe first-time) opportunity to attend and present at this international event. Who will get the chance to act as TU Dortmund representatives at IAWE 25 will be decided in class, based on personal interest and the quality of assignments and data. Students’ own contributions to travel and conference costs of this conference trip will be around 300-400 Euro (However no student will be excluded because of the lack of own financial means). 
The task for the first assignment (an autoethnographic report on your own use of English) will be sent out to all registered students in mid-March and is due on 8th April 2023.

English as a Lingua Franca

Prof. Dr. Susanne Ehrenreich
Blockseminar
801, 802, 803, 704, 103

English has become the global means of communication – which may be stating the obvious. What is less obvious, however, is the question of what kind of or in which ways English is used by its global speakers (see e.g. the discussion revolving around our Chancellor's and Foreign Minister's Englishes). You will realize in the course of this seminar (or you are probably aware of this already) that it is not necessarily English in the shape of one of its major native varieties, i.e. British or American English, but English as a lingua franca (ELF), which is a multilingual and interculturally rich and, above all, variable way of using English for such international purposes. In this seminar, you will be familiarized with pioneering and recent empirical research in this thriving field as well as with suggestions of how to transform such research insights into pedagogical contexts (see e.g. ELTJ 74/4). More specifically, we will look at the pragmatics of ELF, its multilingual nature, the use of ELF in various domains (e.g. International Business, Higher Education), as well as examine a range of proposals of how to include an ELF perspective into teaching, teacher education, and assessment. Details about course requirements will be discussed in the first session.
