Learning & Teaching Languages
Learning and teaching languages is a very active area at the University of Canterbury. We have a suite of unique online courses and programmes which are available to students in any part of the world. Our research efforts are focused in two areas: digital practices in learning and teaching languages and intergenerational transmission of minority languages. As well as their own individual and collaborative research, a team of enthusiastic researchers supervise research students in this area who are working on their PhDs and Master theses. We regularly invite researchers, students and teachers to meet up with us in person or online for symposia in these research areas, and we offer resources for language teachers and for parents and professionals involved with children growing up with more than one language.
Please browse through these pages and take a look at what we are doing. Come back regularly and see if there is a meeting you can join in.
