The Summer School in *Linguistics and Leadership* is a three-week 
international programme held at Bangor University.  The Summer School is 
based in the Department of Linguistics, one of the the world's leading 
venues for teaching and research in the areas of cognitive linguistics 
and bilingualism.

Summer school website:

The programme is aimed at undergraduate and beginning graduate students 
who wish to learn about the nature of language, how it relates to the 
mind and the world, how it evolved, and continues to change, the rise of 
English as the world's global language, the social dimensions of 
language, and how children acquire language. For non-native speakers of 
English there are also optional English language improvement modules. 
The last four days of the Summer School provide an opportunity for 
international students to interact with UK and EU students through group 
work and aims to encourage students to learn from and share experiences 
with a diverse mix of peers. This will develop participants self 
awareness, understanding of leadership concepts and practical skills to 
aid future careers and activities.

In addition to classes and four keynote lectures there is also a full 
social programme, including excursions to some of the most beautiful 
sites in North Wales and beyond.  Keynote lectures will be give by:

Prof. David Crystal  -- English Linguistics
Prof. Vyv Evans  -- Cognitive Linguistics
Dr. John Olsson -- Forensic Linguistics
