This module, designed for seniors preparing for Oxbridge exams that involve language aptitude tests, is aimed to prepare students for their Oxbridge entrance exams through a series of mock interviews focusing on the language aspects of their chosen course. We will discuss topics ranging from basic linguistic terms such as what language is and how dialects are different, along with social and ethnolinguistic issues like how culture shapes language, and vice versa, or what the interconnections between identity and language are. We will examine practical problems related to language such as language learning and translation, while also discovering how linguistic units can be scrutinized.
