The Center for Language Technology (CeLT) and Center for Language Excellence (CLE), in collaboration with the Language Workshop are excited to announce the Summer 2023 Language Learners’ Lounge (LLL), coming up on Wednesday, June 7, 2023, from 4:30-5:30 PM. The theme of this LLL event is “Celebrating Multilingualism,” and our three discussion hosts, Martha Nyikos, Jack Rosswurm, and Alvise Stefani, will each introduce and guide discussion on topics related to being and becoming multilingual:
- Dr. Martha Nyikos, Associate Professor, School of Education, will guide discussion about maintaining languages already studied while learning new ones.
- Jack Rosswurm, M.A. student, Institute for European Studies, will present on the topic “Disparate Languages for Determined Learners: Experiences Learning Unrelated Languages" based on his experience of learning German and Estonian, and will lead a conversation about learning significantly different languages.
- Alvise Stefani, Ph.D. candidate in Italian Studies, Department of French and Italian, will conduct a discussion on the topic “"Depth or breadth? Focusing on one or two languages vs getting broad experience in many” based on his personal experience of learner of both dead and alive languages.
Each topic will be repeated three times, and participants will be able to move from one conversation to another during 5-minute break depending on their interests. This hybrid event will be held both in person in three Ballantine Hall rooms (starting from BH 403), and in Zoom breakout rooms.
