About the programme

Linguistic competences are crucial for the success of individuals, social groups and companies in the modern, globalised information society. Social cohesion depends to a large extent on sharing a common language and ensuring effective communication. One central question concerns the extent to which linguistic competences and communication skills should be attributed to the cognitive architecture of the brain, or to cultural and social conditions.
