DRINKS AND NIBBLES WITH LALS PHD STUDENTS

Have you ever wondered what the PhD students in the School of Language and Applied Linguistics are working on? Come along to our social event for a chance to mingle with us, and learn more about the wide range of research topics we are currently working on!

Following the success of the social events hosted by the School of Architecture, we are excited to hold our very first PhD social event. The event will kick off with four 5-minute presentations, with a chance for the audience to ask a couple of questions after each presentation. Here’s a sneak peek of the exciting topics we have lined up for the event:

  • A Foray into the Field: The Documentation of the Oroha Language for the Creation of a Formal Grammar by Darren Flavelle
  • Fostering learner autonomy in acquiring multiword expressions through text-chunking activities with the aid of online dictionaries and corpora by Thuy Bui.
  • The assessment of listening comprehension in the Vietnamese Standardized Test of English Proficiency (VSTEP): Does a localized test meet international standards? by Diep Tran.
  • Applying cognitive linguistics to second language idiom learning by Aileen Wang

The presentations will be followed by some drinks and nibbles, which will be a fantastic opportunity for everyone to socialise with a glass of wine in hand.
