Linguistic Corner

The Linguistic Corner aims to prepare activities intended mostly for undergraduate students completing the Degree in English studies who are particularly interested in the study of the English language.

Through the Linguistic Corner we aim to:

  1. develop the participants’ general competences
  2. enable them to know or discover specific topics concerning English
  3. discuss current issues around the role of English as a Lingua Franca
  4. deal with cultural aspects of the English world critically
  5. mentor students about academic and professional options
