Third Space Lab Brown Bag Lunch Research Talk: A Conversation About Independent Language Learning

Third Space lab (TSL) invites you to attend the upcoming Brown Bag Lunch Research Talk by Dr. Don Snow (Language and Culture Center) on A Conversation About Independent Language Learning at noon on Friday March 5, 2021 (China Standard Time).

Abstract: You are invited to a conversation about independent language learning! Don will kick things off by briefly sharing some thoughts, hopes and dreams about how we might further promote independent language learning at DKU; he will also talk a little about the current state of the How Do You Learn A Language? book project. (Amidst this all, theory will make occasional cameo appearances, but mainly the focus will be on what we might actually try to do.) Don’s ruminations will be followed by a free-wheeling and stimulating discussion involving anyone who has ideas to share and/or questions to ask.

Please RSVP by 5 pm China Standard Time Thursday March 4 :

Location: CC 1095. Zoom link will be sent to remote participant. Bring your own lunch and enjoy the inspiring conversation! Light snacks and bubble tea provided—please be sure to RSVP.
