Linguists enjoy communication! Besides the information that you find in our websites, it is always useful to have personal communication with the people at the institute - both before deciding to study linguistics in Göttingen as well as during the studies. They will be glad to discuss with you more about linguistics in general, the contents of our programmes or your personal interests in particular, or to help you to select a subject of studies or to create an appropriate studies plan. You may contact the Linguistics Office (contact details in the right menu) for further information, directions, and contacts.
