The project aims at investigating and comparing the professional competencies of German as a second language teachers in schools and institutions of adult education focusing on their theoretical and practical knowledge, their professional vision, their abilities of self- assessment and their professional attidtudes. Teachers' use of language will be assessed based on videotaped lessons combining innovative approaches from computational linguistics such as algorithms for analyzing the complexity of oral language with proven methods such as discourse analysis. In order to assess their professional vision, theoretical knowledge and attitudes, teachers will be asked to evaluate videotaped real-life teaching samples and to answer standardized questionaires and interview questions.
