Once again, we're offering a session at MSU Grandparents University that will introduce 8-12 year olds and their grandparents to the sounds and varieties of English through the medium of the Harry Potter books and movies. The session, Harry Potter and the Secrets of British English will take place on July 1, 2015. It'll be led by Dr Suzanne Evans Wagner, with support from Dr Chantal Tetreault, Anna Perrin and Stacey Rowland. Other volunteers are encouraged to contact Dr Wagner (wagnersu AT msu.edu). Registration for participants in Grandparents University opens March 18, and our session is likely to book up very quickly, so don't miss it!
