Prof. Dr. Andrea Daase – Faculty of Linguistics and Literary Studies

Since October, Andrea Daase has been a Professor of German as a Second/Foreign Language. Prior to taking on this role, she filled in for this professorship for three semesters. Daase studied German as a foreign language, Spanish, Latin American studies, and sociology at Bielefeld University.

After years of teaching German as a second language (DaZ) and holding a coordinating role in language support for adult immigrants, she returned to Bielefeld University, where she completed her doctoral studies in the field of German as a foreign and second language on the topic of the language socialization experienced by adult immigrants in the working world. She subsequently taught a DaZ module for teacher education students, which she also helped to created. In Bremen, she wishes to further research the topic of migration-based multilingualism and German as a second language in the context of schools, vocational training, and work. She also wants to support the education of teachers.
