Our Deep Dives are designed for Dialect MASTERY in one area. you’ll have the opportunity to join the first accent Deep Dive of the academic year:  Scottish!

With the mad popularity of Outlander heralding new interest in all things Caledonian, this couldn’t be more timely.

At less than 1/5 the size of California, and half the size of New York state, Scotland may be small, but it has numerous dialects.  Over the course of this 6-week intensive, we will study Working Class Glaswegian vs. Educated Edinburgh, and a smattering of other regional dialects to boot.
