Subject: Foreign & 2nd Lang Acquisition -Szczyrk, Poland



 Dear Colleague,

 The Institute of English at the University of Silesia is pleased to
 invite you to our 16th International Conference on Foreign and Second
 Language Acquisition. Traditionally, this conference focuses on
 research in foreign language learning. Although all contributions
 related to the field are welcome, in the next year's Conference we
 would like to pay special attention to broadly understood language
 contact and language transfer in SLA.

 The event will be held in Szczyrk, a resort town in the Beskid
 Mountains of Southern Poland, from 22nd to 24th May 2003. An
 all-inclusive conference fee of approximately PLN 500 ($125) will be
 collected on arrival at the conference desk.

 Paper abstracts should be sent before January 31, 2003 to the
 Institute of English. The registration form, including the paper
 abstract, may be posted or sent by fax or e-mail. You will be allowed
 a 20 minute presentation, followed by 10 minutes for discussion.

 For conference-related matters, contact Professor Janusz Arabski, or
 Conference Organisers, at the following address, or visit our website.
