Department of Applied Linguistics and EFL Teaching

The studies conducted by the members of the Department focus on various issues related to applied linguistics, psycholinguistics and second language acquisition. At present, the following issues are explored:

lexical aspects of foreign language learning;

bilingualism of children;

reading comprehension in L1 and FL;

computer-assisted communications skills in English and aspects of virtual exchange in foreign language teaching;

specific learner problems in the development of academic writing skills in English as a foreign language; 

analysis of learner language (L2 writing skills, cross-linguistic influence, error analysis, vocabulary assessment);

cognitive linguistic analysis of cultural phenomena, beliefs or folk theories, e.g., the image of an English teacher as conceptualised by trainee teachers; 

developing critical skills in language education, e.g., critical reading and critical cultural awareness.
