This forum’s presentations will explore the teaching and education of other foreign languages such as German, Spanish, French, and Chinese at university level in Japan. Language education has to bear constant changes caused by G-N-L-university reform(s). Invariably, questions such as ‘What does Monkasho expect of this change and the forthcoming implementation of the CEFR?’ arise. In a globalized world, the following points need also to be addressed: ‘What are the advantages of (even very basic) multilingualism?’ and ‘How to integrate intercultural communication into language teaching?’.
