This web-site combines a variety of textual, visual and audio-visual elements that reflect my learning of foreign languages as art practice. Basic Linguistics is a text that will inform you more on these studying activities and it's context.
Glocal Languages is a discussion on issues of language and politics. The discussion is intended to last about 8 weeks or longer if there is continued interest. If you want to participate in this mailing list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
