Institut für englische Sprache und Literatur

ENGLISH for the teaching profession: this is the main focus of the English Department at Hildesheim University. We are concerned with the study of language, English Literature and New Literatures from around the world, Cultural Studies of the English-speaking world, the theory of teaching, and, of course, the practical application of theory for teaching and learning. Above all, we are concerned with all who need to learn – that is with school-children, students, teachers and lecturers. Life-long learning!
