It is encouraging to see that the Universities of Pakistan have started taking the subject of linguistics in a positive manner. The Air University Islamabad, a reputable institution in the private sector is working ardently to strengthen its Linguistic Department and has been organizing training workshops to enhance the capacity of its faculty members in certain areas. More fascinatingly, FLI helps this university in its endeavors by helping it equip its students and faculty through training workshops.
We take the pride that one of the FLI’s trainees; Mr. Afsar Ali Khan has been facilitating a series of trainings on Phonetics & Phonology in the Air University assisting the participants to understand the very technicalities of the theme. His participants included not only the students but a number of faculty members, from the various universities also attended the training.
