Wishing all followers of our Languages at Southampton blog: students, staff and friends of Modern Languages at the University of Southampton, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2014!
Our congratulations also go to the Humanities Finance Office (see images) who are competing with other offices across the University for the title of best decorated office! (They get our vote, but then we’re biased! :-)).
Please continue to follow us in the New Year to keep up-to-date about all Modern Languages events and language-related news.
Many of our new graduates in Modern Languages attended the Winter Graduation ceremony at the University of Southampton yesterday, and graduated alongside other students from the Faculty of Humanities.
The University of Southampton’s Faculty of Humanities has recently announced a range of studentships in Modern Languages and in other Arts and Humanities subjects, to be funded through the South West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership.
Victoria Rowe and colleagues from the English language section in Modern Languages and Professional Services have recently launched a new English for Academic Study (EAS) website. It features our year-long pre-sessional course, which has recently been modified to become a three-part programme.
With 2014 fast approaching, don’t forget to sign up for the 9th annual LLAS (Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies) E-Learning Symposium 2014, from 23rd to 24th January 2014, which promises to be an exciting and packed event! Delegates can benefit from an Early Bird discount by registering by Friday 20th December 2013. Registration closes on Monday 20th January 2014.
Modern Languages lecturer, Dr Julia Hüttner, has recently completed a project funded by the Higher Education Academy to produce a series of lesson recordings, with 16-18 year olds at a sixth form college in Hampshire and also of classes with international students at the University of Southampton.
Lifelong Learning at the University of Southampton will be holding a one-day cultural event on Saturday 29th March 2014, entitled, ‘Local Voices: Southampton Lives and Languages’. This study day will consist of a series of short talks led by experts from within Modern Languages at the University of Southampton, and will explore multilingualism in Southampton, providing an opportunity for participants to learn and engage in discussion about the voices of Southampton from academics of international distinction.
Laura Duncan and Ceri Dunn from the English Language section in Modern Languages at the University of Southampton have recently launched the results of a project they have been working on to help MSc students in Engineering and the Environment at Southampton to understand their assessed tasks.
The Guardian has reported on some of the main issues that emerged from an online discussion about why languages are important for diplomacy and national security. In the recent live chat, a panel of experts engaged in debate, with discussion focusing on five key themes: the need for languages in diplomacy and national security; the scale of the threats posed if the UK’s language problem is not addressed; fluency vs. functionality; the cost of language training; and the American perspective.
