|Meeting Description:||This workshop focuses on child (4-12) foreign language acquisition in school contexts. Research exploring how children of that age range interact while completing communicative tasks is lacking, especially in foreign language settings. Philp, Oliver and Mackey (2008: 13) stated that there is a need for “rich, detailed descriptions of the many and various factors which interact to impact a given child’s L2 development.” Thus, the conference expectes to present studies carried out within interactionist or sociocultural approaches and focused on different aspects of child foreign language development.
Confirmed Plenary Speakers:
Prof. Yuko Goto Butler (University of Pennsylvania)
Dr. Ana Llinares (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid)
Prof. Carmen Muñoz (Universitat de Barcelona)
Prof. Marianne Nikolov (Pécs University)
