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: Normally applicants for the MSc programme in Applied Linguistics will have substantial previous language teaching experience since taking their first degree, and such experience is of particular importance for those wishing to take certain option courses which lead to the award of the degree with a specialisation in English Language Teaching. However, applicants with other professional experience as language practitioners are also encouraged to apply. Students with little or no professional experience may be admitted to the MSc provided that they have a strong undergraduate academic record in linguistics or language studies and/or an attested existing research interest in applied linguistics. The programme has a 'core-plus-options' format. It consists of a common core of obligatory courses, taken by all candidates in October to December, followed by a wide range of optional courses, taught from January to May, from which students make their selection according to their vocational or academic needs and interests.
