Teaching Greek as a Second Language
A one-day workshop aiming to link theoretical linguistics with the Foreign Language classroom and explore ways to increase interaction between the two will take place on 28 October 2009. The workshop is organized by the Modern Greek Studies program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and will offer practical information useful to all instructors teaching Less Commonly Taught Languages, using the Greek L2 classroom as a case study. Speakers: Brian Joseph (Ohio State University), Mark Janse (University of Ghent), Niovi Antonopoulou (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki), Amalia Arvaniti (University of California at San Diego), Stavroula Tsiplakou (University of Cyprus) and Panayotis Pappas (Simon Fraser University).
