University of Wolverhampton lecturer has just returned from a teaching trip to Central Asia.
She delivered a programme on psycholinguistics to postgraduate students and staff at the L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University in Astana, the country’s capital.
During her visit Irina met the Chief of Staff, Professor Abzal Taltenov along with heads and members of staff of various departments.
She said: “It was an honour and pleasure to work at this modern and vibrant institution, one of the leaders among higher educational institutions in Kazakhstan and Central Asia.
“The visit came about due to some contacts I made at a conference last year and it was very beneficial.
“I hope that my visit is the first step towards developing further links and establishing research and teaching contacts with this university. I know that the university’s Rector, Professor Erlan Sydykov is very committed to international development.”
Psycholinguistics or psychology of language is the study of the psychological and neurobiological factors that enable humans to acquire, use, and understand language.
The University of Wolverhampton’s School of Law, Social Sciences and Communications is now exploring the potential for future exchange projects with the Kazakh institution.
