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:

- Motivation
- Critical period
- Technology
- Cross-linguistic influences
- Learning styles
- Ultimate attainment
- Learner strategies/instruction style
- Feedback

Invited Speakers:

Dr. Lydia White, McGill University
Dr. Laura Collins, Concordia University

Detailed program available March, 2014.

Final Call for Papers:

The deadline for abstract submission has been extended to March 1, 2014.

Notice of acceptance: Beginning of March (i.e. first week)

Though the conference is primarily aimed at English language acquisition, we welcome presentations concerning the role of these factors in the acquisition of other languages.

Talks will be 30 minutes long, followed by 10 minutes of discussion. We ask that the abstracts be at most two pages long (including bibliography), font size 12, and one inch margins. Each abstract should be submitted in two copies, .pdf format, to meltuqam.ca (please include 'abstract' in the subject heading of the email). One of these abstracts should be anonymous.

Abstracts and presentations may be in English or French.
