Title: THE STATUS OF THE GERMAN LANGUAGE IN MODERN UNIVERSITIES
Authors: M.G. Tsepel
Abstract: In the modern world in the context of internationalization, the status of a foreign language is largely determined by its demand in the field of higher education and science. The main tasks of the university’s activities include the development of academic mobility of students and staff, the creation of joint educational programs with foreign universities, and the expansion of international research cooperation. The fulfillment of these tasks is impossible without knowledge of a foreign language. The German language with a once high status, which is one of the main European languages of culture and science, found itself in the era of globalization and internationalization in a difficult situation due to the predominance of English in the educational space of universities not only in Russia, but also in Germany. The author analyzed the cooperation of leading universities with scientific and educational organizations in Germany, made an overview of activities aimed at maintaining and developing the German language, contributing to raising its communicative status in the educational space of universities. The article substantiates the need to preserve the German language in the educational space, since Germany has rich scientific traditions, is open to Russian specialists in the field of education and science, and is a promising partner for Russian universities.
Keywords: communicative status, internationalization of education, German language, decline in status, academic mobility, interuniversity partnership
