Sabine Grasz

I work as a University lecturer in German language and culture at the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Oulu. I teach basic, intermediate, and advanced level courses, and supervise and co-supervise bachelor, master and doctoral theses in the fields of multilingualism, language learning/teaching and translation. I am a member of the COACT research group, specialized in applied linguistics and sociolinguistics. In my doctoral thesis, I analysed multilingualism as a resource in tandem learning, and I am currently researching multilingual practices of German-speaking immigrants in Northern Finland.
