Due to the recent increase in trade, travel and political and social co-operation, language competence has become a key skill in modern Europe. Great efforts have been made to improve language training at all education levels. Whereas in the past language teaching was mainly related to cultural themes with an emphasis on literature, communicative aspects in everyday international contact situations, both for personal and for professional reasons, have become more and more important and language teaching has become interwoven with subject teaching. Case studies have proven to be an excellent means for the integration of subject-specific aspects into language teaching. The use of case studies in language teaching encourages task-oriented teaching methods and problem-based learning, as the students are confronted with an authentic problem they have to solve by analysing material in the target language. The authenticity of the cases and of the material, as well as the integration of current events have an extremely positive impact on the learners' motivation and stimulate language teaching as a whole.

At present, there is little or no information available for interested language teachers to refer to when planning to use case studies in their own programmes.
