Why is it still valuable to learn foreign languages other than English – in general and in Japan in particular? What does modern foreign language teaching and learning research tell us about the benefits of multilingualism, and why is this kind of research important outside of traditional philology?

On October 31st – November 1st, 2020, DAAD Tokyo and the Goethe-Institut Tokyo jointly hosted the International Symposium on Foreign Language Teaching and Learning Research, focusing on the benefits of being multilingual. The symposium was organized in cooperation with the Confucius Institute, the Institut Francais du Japon and the Embassy of France, the Instituto Cervantes and the Korean Cultural Center.

Based on the latest findings of cutting-edge research, the symposium aimed to examine the potential of multilingualism for individuals, educational institution and societies, and to establish and strengthen synergies between researchers and teachers of the five languages involved: Spanish, Korean, German, French and Chinese.

The symposium was held online and it consisted of open plenary sessions and closed workshop sessions for experts.
