Hello and welcome to my site! My name is Alexandra Philbin and I recently completed the BA World Languages programme at University College Cork, through which I studied Spanish, German and Irish. This site was created as part of the module WL4102 (Languages and Information Technologies). I hoped that it would enable me to better understand the relationship between languages and web-based information technologies as I maintained it throughout the semester. Learning about IT was a new challenge for me as a humanities student with little background in computing and I enjoyed tracking my learning progress here.
