This workshop is aimed at primary and secondary school teachers, lecturers,
university students and researchers interested in Second Language Acquisition (SLA).
SLA is a field with a long tradition which has increased in importance since the
1960s. The multiple perspectives adopted provide different but complementary
answers to the understanding of oral and written data produced by young and
older learners in different settings.
The deadline for registration is 23 April 2010. A fee of 55 is payable, which
includes coffee breaks and Thursday lunch. Payment is to Caja Vital Kutxa.
Account number: 2097 0178 10 0018528192. Please state as concept: 'Workshop SLA'.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
