Teaching German to Syrian Refugees

We wanted to take some time today to draw your attention to some really interesting research on how languages are learned happening in Germany. Two researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences are studying how to best teach German as a second language while at the same time helping Syrian refugees in Germany become more proficient in German and better able to find work, access education, and participate in their communities. While the research is still being conducted, the results could have an impact on our understanding of how languages are learned, and, of course, how to best teach our students.
