About my language studies :: Linguistics 2017-22

Learning languages has been one of my ever since passions. Lucky me i studied with the best. But i had also looked for them - it had to be interesting, it had to inspire, it had to make me feel good. Actually one has to run from all the others !

That brought me to study english grammar with a graduate of literature from the new school university in NYC and made me be a student of generative grammar and formal semantics (me and mathematics !!!) with a former prof of the UCLA, who gave lectures that resembled a live performance of pearl jam or so (i´ve seen Pj, they are the best !). That was total chance, and it was wild. I studied together with students from age 18 to age 70, all in the same class, which was exciting too ! Linguistics IS the king and queen of the humanities, so yes, that IS interesting ! ( i think one graduate recently was a woman age 98 ;) )

Anyway. Besides all this i did language learning and teaching, a joint modul of linguistics and teacher studies, learning about several methods and what happens in the brain when learning a new language and what matters in this process (actually communication and balance). Additive Learning is a slow path, but there is no other way in order to keep yourself and grow. A lot of things happen on this path, as learning a

new language is much more than just doing some vocabulary

and grammar ;)
