In the fall semester, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences offers non-credit “language for reading” workshops. The workshops will focus on techniques for the acquisition of grammar and vocabulary needed to translate scholarly materials in the candidate’s field of study. However, there will be no emphasis on speaking or listening. These workshops have been extremely helpful to students who need to refresh their language skills prior to their required language examinations. The workshops meet three hours per week during the semester, and the sessions will be comprised of vocabulary acquisition, grammar review and translation exercises. Students with little or no prior knowledge of the language are welcome, but may find the pace too swift and will need to put in much more individual work outside of the workshop.

No registration needed, but you do need to email the instructor with your intent to participate.
