Advice for my thesis!
Posted June 29th, 2012 - 5:22 pm by from St Andrews, Scotland (Permalink)
Hello everybody!

I'm thinking about preparing my final thesis about English Language, whatever aspect. But I really have no idea about what exactly! I'd like to do it with some machanisms of the language, or the language from a cross-cultural point of view. (I'm italian). But I'm open to every other ideas. Can you give me some pieces of advice for an idea?

Thank you!!

Check one of the Masters Program for ESL, English as a Second Language. There is a good program at ETSU in Johnson City. Ask for Dr. Nelson. Also, University of Boston has a good program. I will ask my friend who teaches philology in Madrid, Maya Garcia Vinuesa at a university near Madrid to email you. Google her name. Her aunt is one of the best foreign language publishers in Madrid. Raquel Concha who has Beatriz as an assistant. Also, Kate Leigh on Facebook is a good resource as she was head of International House. My email is garrisonnyc@yahoo.com. Befriend me and I will introduce her to you.

Buona Fortuna.

Oh, vary thanks!!

In the meantime my relator and I decided to write the thesis about Intercultural Communication, but I haven't had time yet to write anything. Do you think these people can still help me for this subject? Maybe Kate Leigh, for what you said. Maybe she can suggest me some good articles to read.

Thank you again!
