Course Description

More than 7,000 languages are spoken in the world today and their variety seems unbounded. We will take a whirlwind tour of the world’s language with stopovers in six mystery locations (a different location each week) and through examining the languages spoken in those places, we will learn the story of populations migrating and interacting, and their languages changing.
