    1. My son is entering middle school (virtually) this year and I just found out that they've gutted the GT program because of budget cuts

      He will be entering 5th grade and has had a gifted and talented (GT) instructor every year since kindergarten. I'm afraid that he will not only become bored, but also fall behind his potential....

      He will be entering 5th grade and has had a gifted and talented (GT) instructor every year since kindergarten. I'm afraid that he will not only become bored, but also fall behind his potential.

      Thus, I'm asking this group for any recommendations or advice that you may have. Are there any online instructional programs that he could benefit from as a substitute?

    2. Trying to switch from Literature to Linguistics: similar experience and/or advices?

      Hi! I've recently graduated as a BA of Italian philology. But I am interested in pursuing my further studies and academical career in linguistics, studying language contact and linguistic strata in particular. I was wondering if anybody took a similar path and am interested in advice from such folks and also any other humanists here. I'm studying some online material and will try to partecipate in some local university's linguistics BA as a visiting student (I guess it's called a freemover in English) if I can find an affordable option. Also I have found out recommended reading material from local universities I'm interested in and some papers about my field. Do you know of any useful resources for making the transition smoother? What has been you experience if you've taken a similar path to your studies? Thanks in advance!
