„The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.” 

– Ludwig Wittgenstein – Tractatus Logico-philosophicus

Sprache ist nicht erst seit der Globalisierung und engeren Vernetzung der Welt essenziell geworden – sie war es schon immer. Selbst die besten Übersetzungsprogramme können die eigene fundierte, nuancierte interkulturelle kommunikative Kompetenz nicht ersetzen, denn Sprache ist und kann so viel mehr! Und die Sprache, auf die am Ende alles zurückfällt, welche uns in unserer heutigen Welt als Kommunikationsgrundlage dient – als lingua franca – ist English.

Fachsprecher Hr. Nimbler und Fr. Schneider

Vor diesem Hintergrund verstehen wir uns in der Englischfachschaft als Türöffner und Wegebereiter. Um dieses gemeinsame Ziel mit unserer großen und engagierten Fachschaft zu erreichen, stehen wir als Ansprechpartner und Leitung gerne zur Verfügung. Wir verstehen uns hierbei als „key-maker“, die Interessen bündelt, Impulse setzt und neue Möglichkeiten eröffnen. Die Grenzen unserer Sprache sind die Grenzen unserer Welt und Englisch hat das größte Potential diese Welt zu erweitern, vergrößern und zu erkunden, davon sind wir fest überzeugt. Begeben Sie sich mit uns auf eine Sprachreise, welche die gesamte Welt umspannt. Den Schlüssel für unser Transportmittel haben wir bereits, steigen Sie ein.
