This volume originates from a workshop entitled 'Revisiting advanced
varieties in L2 learning' organized by the editors at Aston University
(Birmingham, UK) in June 2006. It consists of a peer-reviewed selection of
the best contributions.

Many different approaches have been used in the study of advanced learners
and their characteristics. Specific areas of language have repeatedly been
found to remain problematic even at advanced levels, and much empirical
research has been carried out. In particular, areas of grammar such as the
tense or agreement systems often pose difficulties, as well as lexical
idiosyncrasies such as formulaic sequences, and the discourse/pragmatic
constraints operating in French. This volume brings together recent
research exploring the advanced learner capabilities in each of those
domains, as well as possible explanations for the difficulties they raise
for the L2 learner of French. Additionally, one of the areas which has
received considerable attention in the French L2 literature on advanced
learners, tense and aspect, is also explored from the point of view of
French learners of English, to explore any parallels. In presenting this
research, the book clarifies the concept of the advanced learner: how does
s/he differ from native speakers and why?
