Language Learning at Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences
A study by the Max PLanck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences is currently being done with two German courses taught by native speakers of Arabic, two different methods, and one common goal. While one course focuses on German grammar and syntax, the other concentrates on vocabulary, semantics, and communication. Through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) before, during, and after the course scientists are able to to study changes in the brain while a new language is being learned and how this particular teaching method influences brain structures. New language courses will be starting shortly. Syrian speakers who would like to learn German, please contact our study coordinator Matthias Schwendemann.
