Language and the brain – Exploring fast-tracks for learning new languages

Research output: Contribution to specialist publication or newspaperSpecialist publication article


the research investigates how students perceive new approaches within language teaching. The background to the project is that students enrolled in the MA program in Middle Eastern Studies had to learn Arabic quickly, to be able to do field work and operate within Arabic speaking contexts. But beyond exploring new ways for students to pick up Arabic at a fast pace, Barhoum and Avery believe that their findings will benefit much wider societal challenges.
