Advanced Field Methods Seminar, post meeting update

Today's info meeting regarding this summer's Advanced Field Methods Seminar in Oaxaca went really well. About 12 of us were in attendance as Dr. Carleton gave us a quick rundown on what the project is about, how it works, what to expect, and what the requirements and costs are.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to do some meaningful and amazing work. Not to mention the experience and resume-boon. I'm super motivated to learn more Spanish now! Netflix will help, as will turning on dubbed and/or subtitle tracks on everything watched on the DVD player from here on out. Spanish talk radio in the car, and podcasts through iTunes. Only seven months left to train my ears to the sounds of Mexico.

If you'd like to discuss the project, head over to the LGSA Fledgelings Google Group...we've already started a topic or two on this!
