These kind of opportunities don’t come along very often, so if you, or someone you know, would be interested in applying for a funded PhD opportunity to research the kind of language learning methods that SSi uses, don’t let this chance pass you by!
Here’s the beginning of the main research description:
The project aims to investigate a radically usage-based approach to the learning of second languages (L2s), including Welsh as an L2. This topic and the basic parameters of the project are given, but the precise details will be decided jointly by the student, supervisor and collaborating partner, SaySomethingin.
There is more information in the documents below, but the application has to be in by March 2020 so pass it on to anyone you know who might be interested.
Thanks, Louis, I’ll try again, but it didn’t seem to work on FB. I was probably making an error in copying it.
It’s linking to this forum - I’m not sure if SSi will be happy for me to do that. I’ll hold back for now. I have the official Welsh link, so perhaps that’ll do the trick as the student will probably need to understand Welsh
Cardiff? That reminds me of something that happened a few years ago, when a coach-load of Belgian supporters were making their way to a match in Cardiff (presumably an international, but I’m not a football fan, so the details elude me). They arrived there, but were quite unable to find the stadium. Hardly a surprise as they were, indeed, in Cardiff, England, and not Cardiff, Wales. (Many Belgians can’t get around the idea that Wales is not part of England and I spend a lot of time trying to explain the difference!)
