The AGC is happy to announce a visitor for the 2014-15 academic year:

Ronghua Wang (Xiamen University, Xiamen City) is doing a project on “The role of co-speech gestures in foreign language vocabulary acquisition”. This involves an experiment with school children in China who are just starting classes in English. The question is to what degree the use of iconic gesture ‘signs’ helps them in the acquisition of new vocabulary in English.
