Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Notice: Good afternoon

My name is Liza D’Arcy. I am an English teacher and linguistic PhD candidate in Valencia, Spain. I am preparing an online cultural and linguistic exchange group in order to research into autonomy in moocs and distance learning. I was wondering if there were any Spanish teachers who might be interested in participating in this project.

I can send information and a course description (intercultural communication focus) to anybody who might want to join the ride.

Kind regards
