Department of Foreign Language Teaching and Research (DFLTR) is one of the largest branches of Faculty of Philology by its membership including over thirty staff members. This is a department that unites scholars and language practitioners who combine language teaching with their research focus on new interactive learning and teaching methods and their application in the study process. Department scholars represent such linguistic studies as morphology and syntax (dr. Dalius Jarmalavičius, dr. Vita Banionytė), cognitive linguistics (dr. Liudmila Arcimavičienė, doct. Ieva Stasiūnaitė, doct. Irena Snukiškienė), socio-linguistics (doct. Dalia Pinkevičienė), literature theory, identity studies, culture and values (dr. Svetozar Poštič, dr. Ovidiu Ivancu, lect. Andrius Ledas, lect. Hannah Shipman, dr. Roma Kriaučiūnienė), foreign language teaching methodology and reflection studies (dr. R. Kriaučiūnienė, dr. V. Pukevičiūtė, doct. L. Zavadskienė). More than a half of department members are teaching research-based academic English in other faculties of Vilnius University such as Philosophy (dr. Svetozar Poštič, lect. Jurgita Kašelionytė), Mathematics and Informatics (lect. A. Statkevičienė, lect. Laura Giniūnienė, lect. Vilma Asijavičiūtė, lect. Ausra Dapšienė), International Relations and Political Sciences (dr. Ovidiu Ivancu, dr. Liudmila Arcimavičienė), Natural Sciences (Lect. Vilma Asijavičiūtė, lect. Dalia Pinkevičienė, lekt. Albina Trečiokaitė), Physics (lect. Daiva Janavičienė, lect.

One of the major goals of this department is to combine language research with the research into new teaching methodologies and practices.
