Promoting our expertise

We're a global community, exploring language and the world.

Our academics can tell you why a person forgets their native language when they become bilingual, why it’s important to minimise the anxiety felt by second language learners, and why small talk is at the heart of how we communicate. You can keep up-to-date with our latest developments and current activities by our staff and students.
