58th Open Seminar on Acoustics joined with 2nd Polish-German Structured Conference on Acoustics
The 58th Open Seminar on Acoustics and 2nd Polish-German Structured Conference on Acoustics are organized by the Gda?sk Division of the Polish Acoustical Society, the latter jointly with the German Acoustical Society DEGA. These scientific events are going to be held in the Delfin Hotel in Jurata on Hel Peninsula on 13 - 16 September 2011.
The topics of the papers submitted to the 58th Open Seminar on Acoustics cover a large area of theoretical, technical and experimental research in the field of acoustics. The 2nd Polish-German Structured Conference on Acoustics will be held in the following sections: multi-modal and object-oriented approaches to audition, computational acoustics, active noise control, room and building acoustics, and seabed acoustics.

Quality and Dynamic Characteristics of Control System Visualization in Control Web
Progress of information technologies and their applications create the necessary need to explore the analysis of techniques to estimate the impact of architecture control system on dynamic characteristics of control. Major impact factors on dynamics and quality of visualization, control modes selection and impact analysis are described in the article.

Collaborative communicative techniques are essential in teaching foreign languages. Our article presents a few modern methods and techniques used in the practice of teaching foreign languages. The aim was to discover what methods are still the most frequently used in the teaching of foreign languages, focusing on communicative techniques in teaching German as a foreign language. The use of collaborative communicative techniques during foreign language classes enables the students to easily acquire vocabulary by means of a process that is both stimulating and enjoyable. The students develop what the specialists call “learner autonomy”, becoming more confident and independent. The conclusion we have reached is that traditional methods still coexist with modern ones, an eclectic approach being highly efficient in teaching foreign languages.
