Linguistics Institute for Language Teachers

This summer OSU’s Department of Linguistics is offering a week-long Linguistics Institute for Language Teachers, LILT. The goal is to provide language teachers with greater linguistic awareness and understanding, with the ability to think critically about language, and with a deeper appreciation for all aspects of language and language study. Throughout the week, participants will learn about the sounds of language, the grammatical structure of language, how language is used in social interaction, and central aspects of the psychology of first and second language learning and use.
