On Monday 1 July 2013, 9 am CEST, registration for the first ever trilogy of Free Massive Open Online Courses in linguistics started. With these three courses students can cover some of the central areas of modern linguistics:

- Linguistics 101 - Fundamentals (basically an introduction to linguistics)
- Linguistics 102 - Speech Science (an introduction to phonetics)
- Linguistics 103 - The Nature of Meaning (an overview of semantics and pragmatics)

Here is the YouTube playlist link for the three MOOCs: where the details are laid out.

Registration and participation is free, all that is needed is a free account on the VLC ( ) and a few mouse to register.

And even if students do not want to get any certificate they can still join in and use the materials ... for free!

The Classes start in Mid-September!

So we invite everyone to register for one or for all three of our MOOCs.
