Any written evidence that we find, especially in the urban area, is there for a reason in our environment. "Linguistic landscapes" which we are surrounded by, consist of characters, writings, company names, streets, products, graffiti, written traces in the eye of the visible environment in contemporary, interdisciplinary scientific field that involves the interpretation of linguistic phenomena in the public space, in the sociolinguistic way of seeing and thinking.

Are there gender stereotypes in children media discourse and how are they manifested? Are there children cartoons that deconstruct gender stereotypes? In her talk the author will try to analyse the interaction of language and gender within the critical discourse analysis of children media discourse. Putting the analysis in the theoretical context of Social Learning Theory and Gender Schema Theory, the author will prove the analysed contents to be important for the learning of aschematic gender roles for the children of preschool age.

Why do we learn foreign languages and how do we learn them in the formal educational context? Do you still remember verbal paradigms and exceptions that we used to cram for exams and did you wonder, while in school, about their purpose? Do you believe it is possible to learn languages in school? And what does it mean to know a language after all?
