Second Language Learning in Industry: From Linguistics to Duolingo

Friday, November 1, 2019 (All day)
Phillips Hall
UI Campus
Iowa City, IA 52245

In early November 2019 or in spring 2020, Bozena Pajak—a linguist at Duolingo—will give a talk about her work to a broad audience and conduct a more intimate Q&A regarding linguistics in industry/tech with UI graduate students.

Bozena Pajak is a linguist working at Duolingo. Her work relies heavily on experimental methodology and expertise in second language learning, making her a great resource for graduate students in linguistics and in DWLLC more broadly who specialize in these areas.

Free and open to all of UI campus (but not the general public)

Hosted by Heritage Grammars & Processing Lab, Multilingual Syntax Lab, DeLTA Center, with support from the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies
