Free online linguistics course

There's a course starting tomorrow called "Miracles of Human Language: An Introduction to Linguistics", taught in English by a Dutch university. It's online, free (can purchase a certificate), lasts six weeks, and has subtitles in Bulgarian for some reason.

I'll probably be doing it and if anyone else wants to join, feel free: it has no prerequisites and all linguistic terminology is explained. Other FAQs can be found here.

It's offered every few months (the last time was in March, I think), so if you can't do it now, you can wait until the next time it comes up.

Just thought this might interest some of you.

I did it a couple of years ago - very enjoyable course.

Interesting syllabus - thanks for the heads up! Right now, though, I'm pretty much swamped. Nonetheless, I'm interested in any thoughts and observations you might make as you proceed through it!
