Welcome to the website of the teaching and research section "German as a Foreign Language" at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Our focus is on fundamental topics of German as a Foreign Language: linguistic theory, language acquisition, and language teaching.
We offer courses for the Master's Programme "German as a Foreign Language" and for the Bachelor's Programmes "German Linguistics" and "German". We maintain close cooperations with the section for "German Language Didactics / German as a Second Language" [Link].
From October 1993 through March 2017, the chair of German as a Foreign Language was held by Brigitte Handwerker. You can find Prof. Dr. Brigitte Handwerker's new homepage here [Link].
Nicole Schumacher will serve as an interim professor from April 2017 through March 2018 [Link].
