  • UNFORTUNATELY THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED - PLEASE CONTACT J.GARWOOD@UCL.AC.UK WITH ANY QUESTIONS*

Sometimes trying to learn a foreign language is like trying to learn a foreign language. Don't worry help is at hand.

Dr Vieri Samek-Lodovici will show how all languages are identical in their fundamental structures and that these structures hold across all languages. Using examples from English and Italian, and treating sentences like chemical formulas, this demonstration will reveal that while the words may be different the fundamental structures are common. It’s counter-intuitive when we consider position and intonation but you’ll be delighted by your innate knowledge of syntactical structures.

This event of part of the UCL Festival of the Arts.
