|Description:||Applause for Ronald Sheen! The field is scandalously short of data. When are we going to furnish hard data about what our methods produce? For example, we hear all the time that there is nothing we can do about improving pronunciation of L2. But there is a growing body of *experimental data* that perception and production in L2 can be improved by training programs. What is the evidence that would say we can't do it?
