Mixed approach consisting of presentations by the lecturers and/or invited researchers and the preparation of a written assignment on a specific research topic in linguistics.
A first part of the seminar will be provided in English. It will consist of a presentation of the theme of the seminar and the different methodologies that can be used to study a specific linguistic phenomenon.
In the remaining hours, provided in the language of specialty (French, English, Dutch, German, Spanish, Italian), the students will develop a research project (with oral presentation and written research report), which will be accompanied by one or more teachers of the language and / or area of specialty. 
Evaluation methods
The final assessment in the June term will be based on:

- an oral presentation during Q2 on the research conducted (30% of the total) 
- a written research report, submitted by the first day of the June session (60% of the total)
In the August/September session, the evaluation will be based on:
- the oral presentation (40%) which in this session takes the form of a commented PPT (with voice-over) and is submitted before or at the same time as the written research report
- the written research report (60%), submitted no later than the first day of the August/September session
