I've been asked by some of you if there's a more convenient way to stay in touch with our little linguistics & language community after courses end. There's Twitter, of course, but not everyone is on Twitter and, anyway, it's not known as the best place for thoughtful interactions.

To fill this gap, I've created a Discord server called Friends of the Schwa. If that's the sort of thing that appeals to you, that link is an invite link. We use it to talk about linguistics and language learning, share articles and links, and ask each other questions.

I am also using this server to make it easier for people to participate in courses when they can't make it to every live session.

It's a friendly, welcoming environment – I hope you'll join us!
