The purpose of this course is to examine an unknown language without any prior knowledge of it. This is the classical field situation: you are stranded within a linguistically previously unexplored territory and want to find out as many details as possible about the language to which you are exposed.

This is what the VLC supplies:

  • a native speaker
  • general information about the language
  • the linguistic methods and tools

The course operates in a cascading fashion, i.e. the individual units will be activated successively.
