This summer Adam will be attending the Linguistic Society of America's Summer Institute in Berkeley-- it is a conference where linguists from all over the world come together to teach three or six week courses on their research. It's an opportunity to keep the linguistic community up to date on all aspects of their field. He will also be working toward certification to teach English as a Second Language, later in the summer, in New York City. Then, hopefully moving to Brazil to teach for a year or two starting in February. He is studying cello with Martha Greschefski, a wonderful teacher at Georgia State University, waiting tables at a local pizzeria, and doing research for a socio-linguist at Emory University.
