TEFL Net Munich

TEFL Net MunichThe Chair of Teaching English as a Foreign Language strives to systematically develop activities, projects and discourses inside and outside LMU - coordinated via the "TEFL Net Munich". Serving as a platform for various links and connections of theory and practice as well as research and teaching, the TEFL Net Munich provides ample opportunity for local and global cooperation. Based on three pillars - TEFLconnect, TEFLforum and TEFLinternational - we are building up a network of topics, discourses, institutions - and people - working in the field of English language teaching.
