International Mother Language Day

In recognition of International Mother Language Day 2019, Wolfson College has put together a video featuring students talking in their mother language. From Bengali to Hungarian, British Sign Language to Dutch, ten different languages are highlighted in this video. Wolfson College's graduate students represent over seventy-five countries, making it one of the most internationally diverse colleges in Oxford.

International graduates at Oxford

Around two thirds of our graduate students are international. Our prospective graduates often have questions for us about what it's like to come to Oxford and live in the UK, so the University Graduate Office has put together some answers.

The event is BSL interpreted. This workshop is a cross-disciplinary exploration of the relationships between gesture and language, and the role of signifying embodied movements more broadly, in culturally Tibetan and related linguistic areas of the Himalayas.

However, whilst there seems to be overlap between gestures and sign language, they differ too, as the protagonists of the movie show and tell us. The film "Ishaare" documents how six deaf signers communicate with hearing shopkeepers, street vendors, customers, waiters, ticket conductors and fellow travelers in Mumbai.
