This third event in a series will focus on inclusive language learning in school settings that already provide learners with some responsibility for their learning. The organizers of this initiative come from different institutions (Montessori Foundation Berlin, University of Duisburg-Essen, University of Braunschweig) and are inspired by the wish to discuss the potentials and challenges of learning and teaching English in autonomous learning scenarios with likeminded people.
