Begin Your Own Voyage of Linguistic & Cultural Discovery with Passport Foreign Language Programme NOW!

Hello! 您好 (Nín hăo)! Bonjour! Hallo!  Ciao! こんにちは (konnichiwa)! Здравствуйте (Zdrástvuyte)! Hola!    

Around 80 Postgraduate Researchers (PGRs) and staff from across the University recently took part in an extremely well received week-long event showcasing the numerous benefits of foreign language learning. There were interactive language taster sessions and inspiring talks by postgraduate and post-doctoral researchers about their own voyages of linguistic & cultural discovery!

Organised and led by the Department of Modern Languages and co-hosted by the Doctoral College, the event spotlighted the Passport Foreign Language Programme which forms the major part of the 771624 Modern Languages and Cultures in PG Contexts module on the Postgraduate Training Scheme (PGTS).

Dr Janine Hatter, Programme Manager of the PGTS at the Doctoral College, said:

“'Modern Languages is a key contribution to the PGTS's aims of developing PGRs' research, professional and personal skills development for vital research-related knowledge, future employment or personal growth.”

The six Foreign Language Taster Sessions gave participants the opportunities to enjoy learning associated with interactive and fun activities delivered by our specialist language tutors. The written and verbal feedback show how participants left the language taster sessions wanting more:

  • “An excellent session, well-pitched and very interesting - thank you”
  • “A really good session. I learned a lot not only about Chinese characters but also keeping students engaged and interested online.”
  • “The explanations about the characters was fascinating and I will remember some of them forever I think!”
  • “The tutor was so nice and friendly and so enthusiastic, it made everyone smile and gave a really good general atmosphere to the class.”
  • “I found everything interesting and fascinating about Chinese language and I feel now less confused and have a better idea on this language.”
  • “I will definitely like to join the module”
  • “I am more than competent to take upon studying language that seemingly looked impossible to be studied!”

Three of the tutors who delivered taster sessions were equally enthusiastic:

Shu-Mei Li 李淑梅, Tutor in Chinese (Mandarin), Chinese taster session, said:

 “你好 Nĭ Hăo! Participants in the Chinese taster session were taken on a journey through the fascinating world of Chinese characters and conversational greetings. During the interactive and fun session, some of the puzzles of characters were unlocked. We discovered that Chinese characters are not a mystery after all! Thank you for taking part in the adventure. I look forward to pursuing our adventure in speaking and writing practical Chinese in September! 再见 Zài jiàn!”

 

Janine Kopp, Tutor in French, French taster session, said:

“A very enjoyable event. Participants took part in multiple activities involving guessing vocabulary, booking a hotel, ordering a meal, matching up commonly used French and English proverbs, etc. The level of engagement and participation was very high. Thank you to all participants for their dynamism and enthusiasm! A bientôt en septembre, I hope!”

 

Tomoko Miyairi宮入朋子, Tutor in Japanese, Japanese taster session, said:

“I really enjoyed meeting new people. Their learning needs vary, but they are all willing to learn Japanese language and our unique culture. We, in the taster session, covered Japanese sounds and rhythm, politeness of Japanese language and how to bow properly, etc. I hope to see many of you in September!”

Six inspiring PGRs talk about their positive experience of the University's modern language modules

The six frank talks by postgraduate researchers (PGRs) provided participants with invaluable insights into our PGRs’ foreign language learning journeys:

 

Charlie Nash, PhD Researcher in Chemistry, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Faculty of Science and Engineering

Research: A Matrix Isolation Investigation of the Reactive Intermediates Formed during the Miller-Urey Synthesis

Passport Language: Chinese (Mandarin) / 中文 Zhōngwén

Charlie said: “The Passport Chinese course was a very fun and rewarding experience, giving me the chance to broaden my horizons, gain some new perspective by exploring another culture, as well as meet some great people I wouldn’t have otherwise. Not only did I get a great grounding in a new language, but also had ample opportunity to develop transferable skills useful in other areas.

The Passport language event was a good opportunity to reflect on my language learning journey as well gain some additional experience in presenting. It was great to hear about the motivations, achievements, and thoughts of the other language learners, and also to receive some invaluable advice from our postdoctoral speaker.”

 

Renae Dyball, PhD Researcher in History, Department of History, Faculty of Arts, Cultures and Education

Research:  London Shocks, 1600-2025

Passport Language: French / Français

Renae said: “My language learning journey has allowed me to gain new perspectives whilst acquiring a worthwhile and applicable new skill. Consistency in revision and practice has allowed me to make gradual improvement throughout my Passport French learning journey.

The ‘PGR Presents & Perspectives On’ event was a fantastic experience, I enjoyed listening to the language learning journeys of other PGR students and being able to share my own. Studying Passport French was really enjoyable for me and I was happy to hear this experience was shared by all of the PGR speakers!”

 

Thomas Cross, PhD Researcher in Astrophysics, Department of Physics and Mathematics, Faculty of Science and Engineering

Research: Astrochemistry and Galactic Habitability

Passport Language: German / Deutsch

Thomas said: “German has proven to be difficult to me, in the sense of new concepts such as verb conjugation that alters depending not only on the tense but also the “person”, but also easier in some ways as it typically follows logical patterns and structure. Often German is quite efficient as you can often convey a sentiment in far less word than English. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time learning this language. It was kept fresh and engaging as it was taught using a variety of techniques and mediums.

The Passport language event was a very interactive and enjoyable experience. As a speaker it was nice having a lot of engagement and stimulating questions about my experience. As a listener everyone gave such interesting talks and it was interesting to hear other people’s experience with the Passport language module. From the view of a language learner, I was able to pick up new techniques for learning whilst simultaneously feeling energised by other’s passion for language.”

 

Victoria Bessonova, PhD Researcher in Climate Change Impact on Offshore Wind, Aura Centre for Doctoral Training, Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science and Engineering

Research: Global Impacts of the Climate Change on Construction and Maintenance of Offshore Wind Farms

Passport Language:  Chinese (Mandarin) / 中文 Zhōngwén

Victoria said: “Since I started learning (and speaking) foreign languages my mindset has changed completely. I realised that I can learn and achieve almost anything if I set the right goal and plan. I have improved my time management and self-discipline. By talking to people from all over the world as part of my speaking practice I have broadened my views on diverse cultures, and it has made me more aware of the differences people may have in our approach to everyday life.'

 

Mila Sari, PhD Researcher in Chemistry, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Faculty of Science and Engineering

Research:  Mapping Heavy Metal Pollution in River Water with Paper-based Device through Citizen Science

Passport Language: Russian / Русский язык (Rusky yazik)

Mila said: “Being non-native English speaker, I believe that language skill is one of the most important skills I have. Aside from gaining knowledge on the language itself, language learning also gives me a lot of transferrable skills such as time management and creative problem-solving. It also helps me ‘take myself out of my research’ and gain fresh perspectives on my work. I took on a new challenge to study Russian from scratch. So far, not only I have gained some knowledge on the language and culture, it also gave me the ‘bravery’ to be a beginner again – to not be afraid to make mistakes and learn from it.

The ‘PGR Presents & Perspectives On’ event was a great opportunity for me (as speaker) to share my experience in language learning and promote the language – as I highly recommend it. It is also an interesting event where I can meet other students who are learning other foreign languages and listen to their perspectives. I think it also create a sense of community between language learners, which is nice to have.”

 

Saphia Fleury, PhD Researcher in Climate Change and Child Migration, Human Geography, Wilberforce Institute for the Study of Slavery and Emancipation

Research:  Child Migration from Vietnam and Montserrat

Passport Language: French / Français

Saphia said: “I want to work in the UN system for which French is a core language, and I am already putting my new language skills to use, since a lot of the literature in my field of research is in French. The Passport languages for postgraduate students has two halves. There are the weekly language classes with a language tutor, and then three workshops spread out during the year that look more broadly at the process of acquiring a language, and the variations in communication across different cultures. Both components are equally relaxed and enjoyable, and the assessment isn’t at all daunting. The focus on cultural contexts in the module also helped me to better understand the professional environment in Francophone countries, as well as appropriate ways of addressing people. So, I learned a lot of useful professional skills along the way. The Passport language event was an interesting way to round off the year, and included fascinating insights into other PGR students' research projects.”

These engaging talks encouraged both thought provoking interactions and probing questions as well as very positive comments from the audience:

“Listening to different perspectives on why people learn a language and how it benefits them motivated me to learn new language!”

“I found most interesting how the Postgraduates enjoyed taking their passport languages and the support they received from the Modern Languages department during their language learning journeys.”

Staff Presentations

In addition, the two presentations were delivered from a post-doctoral researcher and a lecturer/ PGR who offered participants important insight into the knowledge and skills that PGRs need to know now by drawing upon their experiences of working in a multicultural, multinational and multidisciplinary environment. They both highlighted the value of knowledge and skills in languages and understanding different cultures in an ever-increasingly globalised world:

 

Dr Martin Taylor, Post-doctoral Research Associate, Energy and Environment Institute

Research: Energy & Fuels from Waste, Catalysis and Nanomaterials

Martin said: “As a PGR you work hard, learn many things and develop cutting edge research. However, we must not forget the transferrable skills we pick up along the way, these add so much more value to the individual and will set them up for their careers wherever that may be. Learning a modern foreign language is one of those under represented skills and will prove invaluable in the future to differentiate candidates between roles. The current PGRs learning a language while completing their PhDs are shining examples of academic excellence, we should all take a leaf out of their books and grab every opportunity that comes our way.”

 

Samantha Richardson, Lecturer in Biochemistry and PhD researcher in Chemistry, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Faculty of Science and Engineering

Research: Developing Paper based Sensors for Environmental Monitoring

Samantha said “I attended the sessions where students gave an insight into their journeys of learning a foreign language alongside their PhD studies. It was really interesting to hear how learning a language benefited all the students within their own disciplines as well as expanding their knowledge and skill set. It was also a brilliant opportunity to share my own work and experiences and interact with people across the university.”

Our postgraduate researchers were at the core of the event. Modern Languages are extremely pleased to see the event drew to a successful close and look forward to hearing from any interested parties.

A big thank you from the event organiser

Shu-Mei Li 李淑梅, Event Organiser/ Tutor in Chinese, Department of Modern Languages, notes:

“I would like to thank everyone involved. I am absolutely delighted that our doctoral researchers have found studying Passport foreign languages a rewarding and enriching experience, bringing with it not only a change from their usual routine but also real competitive advantages. It was wonderful to listen to postgraduate and post-doctoral researchers who explained precisely how a foreign language has added to and compliments their research and employability. It is also encouraging to have such strong support from the Doctoral College. Thank you to all speakers, PGRs, staff and other participants. An increasing number of postgraduate researchers have already decided to embark on their own journeys of foreign language learning by signing up the 771624 PGTS Modern Languages and Cultures in PG Contexts module. Space is still available for all languages. There is a Passport Foreign Language for everyone, so please don't hesitate to sign up and enjoy the same advantages which blend so well with PGR specialist research. These advantages are expressed so eloquently in the above comments by PGRs and staff. Thank you again to all!”

PGTS Passport Foreign Language Programme Information

We hope our Spotlight Foreign Language Taster Sessions, Perspectives on and PGR Presents will serve as inspiration, as well as an introduction to our Passport Foreign Language Modules as part of 771624 PGTS Modern Languages and Cultures in Postgraduate Contexts (20 credits) 2021/22  

Passport Foreign Language Modules present a wonderful opportunity to begin or build on your interest in foreign languages and cultures, experience other forms of learning, naturally develop a variety of soft skills (e.g. problem solving, communication skills, team working, etc.), and also meet PGRs from across campus who share this interest.  

In the words of fellow PhD students who recently took a Passport course:

 

I did really enjoy the language lessons. Studying a foreign language as part of my PhD has enhanced my student experience at Hull University. It definitely is a great addition to my PhD. I think speaking another language makes me more employable and it’s also fun! I would love to study the next level! I would recommend Passport Foreign Languages to my fellow colleagues and friends. Amazing opportunity to learn/ progress in a language while also doing a PhD [...]”  Felicitas  / Passport Spanish / PhD Earth Science

 

“I have learned far more than I thought I would have by this stage, and it has not felt like hard work as it has been so enjoyable! […] Studying Chinese has definitely enhanced my experience as a PhD researcher at Hull University. It has allowed me to develop a new skill, meet new people, and give some variation to my working day. I very much enjoy my PhD but I think it is good to also study something a little different too. I would certainly strongly consider continuing to the next level of my chosen language next year. I would absolutely recommend Passport Foreign Languages to fellow colleagues and friends […]” ––– Charlie / Passport Chinese (Mandarin) / PhD Chemistry

 

“[…] I absolutely loved that the module was offered to PhD students to complete as part of the PGTS. I would have happily continued learning Spanish as part of the PGTS […]” ––– Victoria / Passport Spanish / Earth Science 

 

“[...] I can fully recommend studying a Passport language module for any PG students, it can provide a welcome break from mainstream studies whilst learning something new and exciting or building on a previously learnt skill.” ––– Renae / Passport French / PhD History
