On November 1st, OLBI celebrated its 50 years of excellence in second-language teaching, both in Canada and across the globe. We would like to thank all those who devoted themselves to improving our students’ employability, whether it be our staff members or our professors. It is now time to shift our outlook towards the future and contemplate OLBI’s role on the national and global stages of second-language teaching.
One of our professors, Sheila Scott, was recently interviewed for an article in the Fulcrum, which featured her hard work and innovative academic approaches to teaching the Irish language and culture. Opening up about her own history and passion for Irish culture, Ms. Scott shares what attracted her to study the subject, and eventually do her PhD in Irish syntax and morphology.
