Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Program Description: Applied Language runs a part-time distance PhD programme recognised by the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council. The programme is primarily aimed at English language teachers working abroad who want to maintain an academic base in the UK. The programme is centred on Professor Paul Meara’s vocabulary research group.

The PhD programme is specially designed for people who want to join an active research group while continuing to work. The Department is strongly committed to supporting part-time students, and we do not normally accept students on a full-time basis. The part-time programme usually takes six years to complete, and we normally have four or five places available each October. Places are normally allocated in February, and you are advised to contact Applied Linguistics informally in advance if you are intending to apply for a place to study with us.
