Introduction to Linguistics I Retake

In response to recent instances of disinformation spread through assorted social media, which may result in a much undesired disruption of Institute affairs, the faculty would like to remind those whom it may concern that

The Introduction to Linguistics I Retake

will take place on

March 6th (Tuesday), at 2:00 p.m. (14:00 HRS), in room 335.

The final test retake follows the same organizational rules (i.e. exam mode) as the first final (i.e. it is taken/sat collectively and not as separate tests in tutoring groups).
