Mr Langner completed his Erste Staatsexamen in 2007 with a study on “Der ‘Libertin’ in Thomas Shadwells ‘The Libertine’ and Sir George Ethereges ‘The Man of Mode’: literarischer Typus und kulturelles Phänomen”. His current research interests are the use of "Sprachmittlung" (mediation) in language teaching at universities and the teaching of grammar in context.


Mr Langner is part of our dedicated team of Language teachers in the German Department. He studied English, German, and German as a Foreign Language at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg and graduated in 2007 with the 1. Staatsexamen, the equivalent of an M.A.

During his studies he worked as a wissenschaftliche Hilfskraft in the Department of German for Prof. Joachim Fritzsche (Didactics of German) and Prof. Hans-Joachim Solms (History of the German Language). As part of this work he was involved in compiling a new Middle High German Grammar and helped editing the latest edition of Hermann Paul's Mittelhochdeutsche Grammatik.

In 2007 Mr Langner joined the German Department of the University of Bristol as a German Language Assistant and stayed on as our DAAD-Lektor (German Academic Exchange Service) in 2008. In 2011 Mr Langner became Language Director for German. He is responsible for all levels of the German language programme at Bristol and Erasmur Co-ordinator for the Department.
