Fresher’s Week 2017 Events

Come and see our events this Freshers’ Week!


Exploring Accents

All new linguists and language enthusiasts joining the University of Edinburgh are warmly welcomed to our Exploring Accents event as we traverse the UK and beyond by way of accents. Come along, discover a plethora of pronunciations from all around the world, and maybe even join us on stage to represent your own!


Film Screening: The Linguists

The Linguists is an acclaimed documentary film which explores the daily lives of professional field linguists as they document previously un-researched and undocumented languages. Linguists and non-linguists alike are invited to share both these fascinating discoveries and free popcorn!


LangSoc Meet and Greet

Our informal meet and greet evening is a great chance for you to meet other students from your course in both your year and those above. Get to know LangSoc, who we are, and what we do.

For plot reasons we’ll only have 12 characters, so register your interest as soon as possible! Please only say you’re going to the event if you’re sure you’ll attend so we have an idea of numbers.
