|Meeting Description:||The Successful Adult Second Language Learner
What is necessary for adult language learners to succeed in the learning process? Are there factors that make success more likely? What are the inhibitors? We are interested this year in sharing ideas and current research on this issue.
MELT 2014 will focus on adult language learners (i.e. university, college and CEGEP) and the impact of the following factors on their language learning:
- Critical period
- Cross-linguistic influences
- Learning styles
- Ultimate attainment
- Learner strategies/instruction style
