Hello and welcome to Languages 101! My name is Prof. Amy Lupin and I look forward to having you in my class this term.

In this class you will be learning about different aspects of language, including its importance, choosing which languages to learn and also about linguistics. We will also be covering ways to learn a language and also how knowledge of other languages - even if they are very different from the one you are currently learning - can help with learning a new language.

The idea behind this class came from when I spent some time learning Italian some years ago. It was something I had always wanted to do, and while it was a rewarding experience, it certainly wasn't without its challenges!

Should you have any queries, feel free to send an email to hol.languages@gmail.com.

Hope you have a great term!
