Friday February 13th will be the date for the first part of our QIA English Language programme this year. The conference entitled CSI:SFX will feature lectures on forensic linguistics, the spread and development of English around the world, and two lectures on different aspects of London English.

The lecturers are:
Mark Abley, author of The Prodigal Tongue
Ben Rampton, King's College University
Sue Fox, QMU
Krzysztof Kredens, Centre for Forensic Linguistics, Aston University

There are limited tickets available for students and teachers, as we are hosting the conference in a relatively small venue and have 40 of our own A2 students, so we can probably accommodate 10 students and 2 teachers per college or school, up to a maximum of 4 institutions. Please contact me at d.clayton at if you'd like more details.
