We are excited to be hosting the UK Linguistics Olympiad (UKLO) training camp 2022 over this weekend.
UKLO is a competition for students who are still at school (or equivalent college) to their knowledge to solve linguistic data problems. We are delighted to be able to support UKLO as the ethos of the competition is directly aligned with our own teaching approaches exploring the relationship between linguistics and the world around us.
We hope schools will continue to participate and support this fantastic enterprise!
