Welcome from the President
Welcome to the exciting, dynamic world of Applied Linguistics! At the Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics (GIAL) we share our enjoyment in learning about the thousands of languages spoken in the world today. There is so much more to learn about cultures and peoples, than just the languages they speak! Most of these languages do not even have a written form yet.

and what we do.
The GIAL faculty members bring
a wide range of practical field
experience to share in the classroom,
in addition to their academic expertise
acquired through advanced studies.
This contributes to a superior
education built on a strong academic
foundation empowered by practical
understanding of how languages
work. Our faculty is available to
discuss with students the personal
aspects of field work as well.
You are cordially invited to join the
adventure of learning to communicate
