The School of Linguistics was founded in December 2014. Today, the School offers undergraduate and graduate programs in theoretical and computational linguistics. Linguistics as it is taught and researched at the School does not simply involve mastering foreign languages. Rather, it is the science of language and the methods of its modeling. Research groups in the School of Linguistics study typology, socio-linguistics and areal linguistics, corpus linguistics and lexicography, ancient languages and the history of languages. The School is also developing linguistic technologies and electronic resources: corpora, training simulators, dictionaries, thesauruses, and tools for digital storage and processing of written texts.

What did you like about this summer school?
I liked everything, but of course primarily the students. Students were wonderful. I think I knew from when I was last here 15-20 years ago, how good Russian students were. And they seem to have gotten even better. They are both very intelligent and very curious, scientifically curious, but also at the same time very polite and charming. It was a real pleasure to be here. But my only concern is, that I came here to teach, but I’ve actually learned more than I taught.
What was your brightest impression?
The food was very good! The food was excellent. Especially the fresh fruit, which was really very good. Much better, than in Germany or in other places in Northern Europe. So, I was very surprised by that. But also, what was nice about the food was that it encouraged us to socialize. I was very pleased by the amount of socialization that took place. In the beginning, perhaps, I was concerned that we will be very isolated here, but we created our own community. Perhaps, that was the reason that we came here: to create our own community. Wonderful memories from here to take back.
Do you want something like that once again?
Absolutely, yes! For all of you, I hope that you will do something like this, and for me, I hope that you will invite me back again. Yeah, it was wonderful. I think I’ve already made lots of good connections with many students and professors. I hope to see all of you again!
