Mission & Vision

At BAEL, we focus on language use in social contexts and the underlying cognitive processes involved. We work with naturally occurring text and talk as well as with experimental data.

Furthermore, we believe that students must be involved in this work and empowered to do research right from the start. After all, what is research but learning, that is, finding out about life?

New BAEL Outreach Project

Some of our MA students are currently creating a scientific blog, writing about research in various areas of applied linguistics. Students from our partner school, the Gymnasium zum Altenforst in Troisdorf, will read and discuss the blog entries in the context of their English classes and have the opportunity to interact with the authors on the blog's website. This is a pilot project, and we are excited to find out how well it works!
