What do aesthetics have to do with foreign language teaching and how can different art forms be integrated in foreign language teaching? These were the questions addressed in 2013 at the congress on “Aesthetic Learning in the Acquisition of German as a Foreign-Language. Literature – Theatre – Fine Arts – Music– Film.” at the UNAM (Universidad Autónoma de México) in Mexico City. The proposition commonly received was that the inclusion of sensory perception in processes of language acquisition enable an open and vivid approach to language and culture that lies beyond the often-predominant focus on competence. The volume at hand gathers in a well-balanced theory-practice proportion selected congress contributions and additional articles in which the different art forms with due regard to their own aesthetics are placed in the center of attention.
