Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition

Meeting Description:

The objective of this one-day workshop is to explore ways of promoting
crossfertilisation between theoretical, second language acquisition research and
language teaching research- two related fields that have thus far rarely engaged
in dialogue. Specifically, we aim to consider how the findings of generative
second language acquisition research might apply to language teaching.

Invited Speaker:

Roumyana Slabakova
