The teaching of Matthias Hüning concentrates on the structure and the history of the Dutch language. Often a comparative or contrastive perspective is chosen: Dutch in comparison with other (mostly Germanic) languages. Theoretical issues are usually discussed and illustrated with Dutch examples (but also from a comparative perspective).
Another topic is the sociolinguistic dimension, i.e. the social, politic and cultural meaning of language(s) and language variation.

Information about the study programs in Dutch philology (BA, MA) and in linguistics (MA). The recent catalogue of courses at the Freie Universität can be found in the 'Vorlesungsverzeichnis'.
