We’re happy to announce the 21st Traditional Summer Linguistics school for high school students will be held in Narva-Jõesuu, Estonia, in the approximate dates of July 10-21, 2022.
This summer school was originally an event for mostly Russian-speaking students from St. Petersburg, Russia, as well as from the Baltic States, and therefore traditionally was mostly held in Russian. However, due to current situation we expect most participants to be from various countries of Europe. Accordingly, the official language of the event in 2022 will be English. The programme of the school is planned to be a mixture of what used to be International Youth Language Festival and the Traditional Summer Linguistics school, which means that courses on different fields of modern linguistics will go along with short courses of different languages of the world. Something similar was held by us in July-August last year and proved to be a real success. Classes on solving linguistic problems are also programmed. The courses will be performed by professional linguists and university teachers from Estonia, Israel, Germany, Poland, etc., the exact list and programme to be confirmed closer to the event.
The potential audience of the school are high school and early University students at the approximate age range between 14 and 19. We’re especially aiming at participants of national olympiads in linguistics but of course not disregarding the kids who just have natural interest to languages and science.
The venue will be, as usual, hostel Laine (http://lainekodu.ee) with the price of 620 euro including accommodation, meals and the transfer from Tallinn and back. One day excursion to Tartu might also be organised, subject to the current situation and possible restrictions.
The deadline for applications is May 31.
We’re waiting for your applications in a free format to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
